Effect of Prone Position C-ARDS

2022 27 Apr

COVID-19 has resulted in the death of over 4 million people worldwide. In severe cases of COVID-19, acute respiratory infection leads to severe pneumonia, which worries to progress hypoxaemia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).  Prolonged sessions in the prone position is an effective intervention to decrease mortality in these patients....

Findings from the COVID-VENT Trial

2022 08 Mar

Many patients with COVID-19-associated acute respiratory failure fulfil the criteria of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and require invasive mechanical ventilation. Therefore, it is important to understand the features of gas exchange abnormalities, respiratory mechanics and lung recruitability in these patients to provide an appropriate... Read more

PICU Patients At-Risk for PARDS

2022 01 Mar

Approximately 2-4% of patients admitted to PICUs suffer from paediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome (PARDS). PARDS has a mortality rate of nearly 20% and has no specific treatment. Identifying children at risk of developing PARDS could potentially result in more targeted therapies to prevent disease progression and improve patient outcomes. ... Read more

ARDS Subphenotypes Using Machine Learning

2022 25 Jan

An observational, multicohort, retrospective study was conducted to validate two machine-learning clinical classifier models for assigning acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) subphenotypes. Two ARDS subphenotypes with distinct biological and clinical features and differential treatment responses have been identified in seven individual cohorts.... Read more

What Does ARDS Mean During COVID-19?

2021 14 Dec

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) was described as a syndrome in 1967. At that time, it was defined as a condition characterised by severe hypoxaemia and diffuse bilateral opacities. Diagnosis of ARDS has always been context-dependent, but overall, achievements in traumatic and medical resuscitation and the use of invasive mechanical ventilation... Read more

Impact of Treatment Variability on ARDS Mortality

2021 02 Nov

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a potentially fatal condition characterised by acute hypoxaemia, and bilateral radiographic infiltrates and a mortality of 36 to 47%. Interventions like lung protective ventilation (LPV) and prone positioning have been shown to improve survival but remain underused. Other treatment methods such as neuromuscular... Read more

Respiratory Subphenotypes of COVID-19-Related ARDS

2021 19 Oct

Patients with COVID-19 related ARDS present with distinct respiratory subphenotypes. But most phenotyping schema is limited by sample size, disregard for temporal dynamics and insufficient validation.   In the PRoVENT-COVID study, researchers aimed to identify respiratory subphenotypes of COVID-19-related ARDS. This was an investigator-initiated... Read more

Simultaneous Management of ARDS and sABI

2021 14 Sep

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) occurs in approximately 40% of patients with severe acute brain injury (sABI), including acute ischaemic stroke, subarachnoid haemorrhage, intracerebral haemorrhage and traumatic brain injury. It is also a major determinant of morbidity and mortality.   With the increase in ARDS cases and reports of neurological... Read more

#ISICEM21: Findings from the REST Trial

2021 01 Sep

Acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure is a leading cause of admission to ICUs and is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Many patients affected by acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure meet the diagnostic criteria for acute respiratory distress syndrome. An important intervention that has been shown to reduce mortality in patients with... Read more
