Evolving epidemiology and definitions of the acute respiratory distress syndrome and early acute lung injury. Clinics in chest medicine Sweatt, A. J., Levitt, J. E. 2014; 35 (4): 609-624


This article reviews the evolving definitions and epidemiology of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and highlights current efforts to improve identification of high-risk patients, thus to target prevention and early treatment before progression to ARDS. This information will be important for general practitioners and intensivists interested in improving the care of patients at risk for ARDS, and clinical researchers interested in designing clinical trials targeting the prevention and early treatment of acute lung injury.
