Thoracic cage sarcoma. 3rd to 6th anterior ribs resection - significant chest in-drawing and paradoxical chest wall movements with spontaneous breaths.

Patient on SIMV-PS. PEEP 8. Can anyone explain to me the increase in airway pressure during the early expiration (red arrow) and the two-slope appearance of the assisted breaths (blue arrow) ?
