Acute adult resporitary

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome ARDS also known as, adult respiratory distress syndrome previously non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema is a syndrome of acute respiratory failure characterized by bilateral diffuse alveolar infiltrates on chest radiography and resulting hypoxemia. ARDS begins with an injury that results in an inflammatory cascade with resulting vascular permeability and pulmonary edema. Loss of aerated lung tissue subsequently leads to hypoxemia and ventilation-perfusion abnormalities.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS is a common and devastating condition which can affect all adult patients - eg, medical, surgical and obstetric patients.

Care of the Critically Ill Patient pp Cite as. This chapter serves as an overview of acute respiratory failure ARF and the adult respiratory distress syndrome ARDS and attempts to put these syndromes into a clinical perspective for the other chapters in this volume. Then the clinical definition of ARDS is considered, particularly noting differences between varying definitions as well as common features. Next the clinical risk factors or the clinical settings of ARDS are reviewed, along with the known information regarding incidence of ARDS for each clinical risk.

Back to Health A to Z. Acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS is a life-threatening condition where the lungs can't provide the body's vital organs with enough oxygen. Most people have therefore already been admitted to hospital by the time they develop ARDS.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS occurs when fluid builds up in the tiny, elastic air sacs alveoli in your lungs. The fluid keeps your lungs from filling with enough air, which means less oxygen reaches your bloodstream. This deprives your organs of the oxygen they need to function.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation ECMO can be a lifesaving therapy in patients with refractory severe respiratory failure or cardiac failure. Use of ECMO for respiratory failure has been increasing since ECMO can stabilize gas exchange and haemodynamic compromise, consequently preventing further hypoxic organ damage.

Typically, ARDS develops within 24 to 48 hours of the original illness or injury. It may become a life-threatening condition characterized by inflammation of the lungs, which may begin in one lung but eventually affects both, and leads to damage to the air sacs alveoli and surrounding small blood vessels. The damaged alveoli close down or fill up with fluid lung edemathereby losing their ability to oxygenate the blood and eliminate carbon dioxide. Patients experience increasingly severe respiratory distress, associated with decreasing oxygen levels in arterial blood and tissues.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a manifestation of acute injury to the lung, commonly resulting from sepsis, trauma, and severe pulmonary infections. Clinically, it is characterized by dyspnea, profound hypoxemia, decreased lung compliance, and diffuse bilateral infiltrates on chest radiography. Provision of supplemental oxygen, lung rest, and supportive care are the fundamentals of therapy.

It can either result from a direct pulmonary source or as a response to systemic injury. Lung damage results in leakage of fluid into alveoli, leading to non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema and decreased arterial oxygenation. The diagnosis is based on mainly clinical criteria set forth by the American-European Consensus Conference 4. Acute respiratory distress syndrome is characterized by the following criteria 7 :.
