ARDS Evolution

We sought to examine changes in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) management over a 12-year period of two successive randomized trials.

Conclusion: Clear trends were apparent in tidal volume, airway pressures, ventilator modes, adjuncts and rescue therapies. With the exception of prone positioning, and outside the context of rescue therapy, these trends appear consistent with the evolving literature on ARDS management.
