Enteral Nutrition with Anti-inflammatory Lipids in ALI/ARDS
Acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are two severe forms of respiratory failure characterized by non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema and refractory hypoxemia with massive pulmonary and systemic release of pro-inflammatory mediators. The incidence of these life-threatening pulmonary diseases in the United States is currently estimated at 56–82 cases per 100,000 persons/ year [1, 2]. Current strategies adopted to treat patients with ALI and ARDS, including protective ventilation and prone positioning among others, are supportive in nature and have not shown a clear benefit in terms of mortality reduction .
