Specifically, certain acute inflammatory cytokines were lower in the ARDS

It is proved that low dosage of corticosteroid for ARDS
patients led to better outcome.
"The three-pronged model could be used to better identify at-risk patients for both the study and prevention of ARDS

. We also determined the effect of methylprednisolone on the duration of ventilator-free days and length of stay.
The researchers found that ARDS

While choosing the correct patient to administer MV; mild ARDS
can be considered green, moderate ARDS

may be deemed red.
is characterised by severe acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure with increased work of breathing and decreased lung compliance, which together usually mandate mechanical ventilation.
is a catch-all term associated with the inability of lung tissue to take up oxygen, the lungs become very stiff and are incapable of transferring oxygen into the blood.
is a syndrome characterized by acute onset (within 7 days), radiologically bilateral opacities on CXR or CT scan, hypoxemia (Pa[O.sub.2]/Fi[O.sub.2]<300) and repiratory failure that cannot be explained by cardiac failure or fluid overload (echocardiography being diagnostic) (5).
