Group 1: 3 min at normal tidal volume, Group 2: 30 s with the 4 deep vital capacity technique. SD: standard deviation, Min: minimum, Max: maximum, T1: after preoxygenation, T2: immediately after intubation, T3: at the 3rd min after intubation, T4: at the 7th min after intubation, ^{*}*P*-value: Comparison between groups. ^{†}*P*-value: Compared within the group, a-c: There is no difference between times with the same letter in a group.
