Featured Review: Oxygen therapy in adult intensive care patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome
Approaches to guiding oxygen therapy in adult intensive care patients with acute respiratory distress syndromeAcute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a very severe breathing problem with a high mortality rate (chance of dying). It has many potential causes, including viral infections such as COVID-19, and there are no specific treatments for it except for giving patients oxygen via a ventilator (artificial breathing machine) on an intensive care unit, often for long periods of time. However, large amounts of oxygen (either a high concentration of oxygen or oxygen administered for a long period of time) are known to i...
