ARDS: Overview

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening medical condition characterized by rapid-onset severe respiratory failure. It occurs when the lungs become severely inflamed, leading to fluid buildup in the air sacs, which impairs oxygen exchange. Common causes include infections, trauma, or inhaling harmful substances. Patients with ARDS often require mechanical ventilation in an intensive care setting to support their breathing and oxygenation. Early recognition and treatment are crucial for better outcomes.
