5] Clinical features of ARDS
are severe dyspnoea, tachypnoea, and hypoxaemia refractory to supplemental oxygen along with the clinical features of the initiating injury.
Over the last 20-30 years researchers have come up with novel therapies but have not been able to move the needle substantially in terms of reducing mortality of ARDS
patients," explains Professor Anand of Stanford University, USA.
Outputs : ARDS
is rolled out nationwide and operational.
The histologic counterpart to the clinical diagnosis of ARDS
is diffuse alveolar damage.
In addition to renaming ARDS
in 1994, the American-European Consensus Conference on ARDS

needed to win this one to have any hope of avoiding relegation but instead they could only grab one point.
Clinically, the response to oxygen therapy is measured as the Pa02/FI02 ratio, which in ARDS
is less than 200.
