Acute respiratory distress syndrome

European Respiratory Society
Marco Confalonieri, Francesco Salton, Francesco Fabiano
European Respiratory Review 2017 26: 160116; DOI: 10.1183/16000617.0116-2016
"In the past year, several interesting papers were published on epidemiology, novel risk factors, prevention and treatment of ARDS. Despite the well-established advances in its supportive treatment, ARDS remains an oftentimes misdiagnosed syndrome, carrying a high burden in terms of patient morbidity and mortality, as well as healthcare costs. Even if plentiful literature exists on the pathophysiology and treatment of this syndrome in human and animal models, implications in clinical practice are still poor. Future directions of research should focus on identification of the mechanisms of susceptibility, primary prevention and early treatment, as well as on targeted pharmacological therapies for this devastating condition."
