Abstract

Respiratory failure associated with severe illness and trauma remains a major problem, with an ultimate mortality rate of 5% or greater [16, 18]. Despite intense research efforts the etiology of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and its optimal treatment are not yet fully understood [2, 5, 6, 19].
