Primary outcome: EIT imaging maps that provide regional information regarding ventilation and perfusion of the lung. These images will be analyzed both visually for qualitative abnormalities and through quantitative pixel analysis that can provide information regarding lung volume, blood volume, and changes in either based on respiratory cycle, cardiac cycle, or intervention. Areas of low ventilation (atelectasis and consolidation) will be identified. Secondary outcomes: Regional conductivity changes due to ventilation Waveform for a mesh element Regional conductivity changes due to perfusion Regional pulsatile perfusion imaging at the end of systole Power waveform (computed as the inner product of measured voltages and applied currents)
