|Pleural Effusion Drainage Electric Impedance Tomography||Device: Electrical Impedance Tomography record||Not Applicable|
Critically ill patients treated in intensive care units have a disorder of distribution and volume of body fluids due to principal illness and some therapeutic interventions. One of its manifestations is pleural effusion (PE) formation.
Patients on mechanical ventilation indicated by treating physician to pleural fluid evacuation will be monitored throughout the procedure by electrical impedance tomography (EIT) and concurrently end-expiratory lung volume (EELV) will be measured. The purpose of the study is to better understand impact of PE evacuation on aeration and ventilation of the lungs.

Experimental: Electrical Impedance Tomography record
Electrical Impedance Tomography monitoring of the pleural effusion evacuation.
Device: Electrical Impedance Tomography record
Monitoring of pleural effusion evacuation by means of EIT
- Change of the thorax electrical impedance following pleural effusion drainage in mechanically ventilated patients [ Time Frame: 4 hours ]Comparison of EIT results with end-expiratory lung volume measurement during drainage of pleural effusion
- Change of the distribution of ventilation following pleural effusion drainage in mechanically ventilated patients [ Time Frame: 4 hours ]Change of distribution of ventilation over EIT regions of interest (ROIs)
