Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a severe lung condition that can cause difficulty breathing, low oxygen levels in the blood, and organ failure. It occurs when the lungs become inflamed and filled with fluid, making it difficult for oxygen to reach the bloodstream. Common causes of ARDS include severe infections, lung injury, and inhalation of harmful substances. Risk factors for ARDS include advanced age, underlying chronic medical conditions, and a weakened immune system. Treatment typically involves mechanical ventilation and addressing the underlying cause of the condition.
