Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) burdens intensive care units (ICU) and their patients across the world. This presentation discusses the presentation, pathophysiology, current treatment and nursing implications for ARDS. This pathophysiological process requires exceptional interprofessional teamwork by the healthcare team. It is important for nurses to have an in-depth comprehension of this disease and its manifestations so that it can be detected and treated as quickly as possible. Further research and education are needed to improve the mortality rates of patients with ARDS.
