Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains a life-threatening syndrome, resulting in high morbidity and mortality. In ARDS patients and mechanically ventilated critically ill patients, two distinct subphenotypes, presenting hyper- and non-hyperinflammatory characteristics, have been identified.

Studies show that early identification of the inflammatory subphenotypes in patients at risk of ARDS could serve as a predictive or prognostic strategy that will lead to an early intervention and individualization of care.

A study has been carried out to prove the hypothesis that the inflammatory subphenotypes are present before ARDS development in at-risk patients presenting to the emergency department and remain identifiable over time.

To learn more about the methods and findings of this study listen to the next podcast.
