Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a type of respiratory failure characterized by rapid onset of widespread inflammation in the lungs. Symptoms include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, and bluish skin coloration. For those who survive, a decreased quality of life is common. Causes may include sepsis, pancreatitis, trauma, pneumonia, and aspiration. The underlying mechanism Specialty: Critical care medicine. Acute respiratory distress syndrome presents as hypoxia and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates on chest imaging in the absence of heart failure sufficient to account for this clinical state. Management is largely supportive, and is focused on protective mechanical ventilation and the avoidance of fluid overload. Patients with severe hypoxaemia can be managed with early short-term use of.

Abstract: Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and its complications remain lifethreatening conditions for critically ill patients. The present therapeutic strategies such as prone positioning ventilation strategies, nitric oxide inhalation, restrictive intravenous fluid management, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) do not contribute much to improving the mortality of by: 1.   The first in a series designed to provide up-to-date research information.

A prothrombotic coagulopathy is commonly found in critically ill COVID‐19 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). A unique feature of COVID‐19 respiratory failure is a relatively preserved lung compliance and high Alveolar‐arterial oxygen gradient, with pathology reports consistently demonstrating diffuse pulmonary microthrombi on autopsy, all consistent with a vascular.
