Example text

Of 11,112 emergency admissions, 4,920 patients had at least 1 of 9 predetermined risk factors for ARDS. The high-risk cohort was followed over a period of 7 days for the onset of the syndrome. 1 cases per 1,000 admissions if all emergency admissions were considered in the denominator. Other investigators used inferior types of study design to determine incidence rates. 5 cases/105 population. The use of broad definitions of the syndrome and the retrospective nature of the design made this study particularly prone to selection and recall bias as well as misclassification of cases.

Garber and Paul C. 1'2 This syndrome has since become known as adult or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). 5 Consequently, prevention or early intervention appears to be an important and necessary approach in the management of ARDS. The high mortality rate and lack of success of new interventions have also led to a reevaluation of our basic understanding of ARDS. Thus, revisiting the epidemiology of this syndrome is of paramount importance. By determining the incidence and establishing risk factors for ARDS, invaluable information required to develop preventative strategies or targeted early therapy may surface, offering the hope for improved outcomes in patients afflicted with this syndrome.
