Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a condition that involves severe injury to the lung and was first identified during the Vietnam War. Continual research has been performed which has led to multiple treatment modalities. Some treatment modalities are viewed as controversial which proves that more research regarding ARDS needs completed in order to improve patient outcomes. Further education and investment in bedside interventions will continue to improve the clinical treatment and survival rates of affected patients.
