We are proud to bring you the latest issue of Respiratory Reader with a focus on Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). ARDS represents a life-threatening complication of inflammatory disorders including sepsis, trauma, pancreatitis, and pneumonia. Affecting 150,000 to 200,000 people in the United States each year, ARDS leads to death in as many as 45% of patients depending on severity. Despite intense investigation of ARDS pathophysiology and treatment, mortality has only slightly decreased in recent years.
