    Transcript

    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 ARDS occurs after a direct or an indirect injury to the lungs.

    00:08 Now, it's been described with three phases or stages whichever you prefer, acute/exudative, reparative/proliferative and fibrotic.

    00:17 Now, the initial injury causes a release of cytokines which initiates the inflammatory process.

    00:23 Fluid shifts into the alveoli causedby the lymph system being overloaded.

    00:28 Damage to pneumocytes (type l and type ll), inadequate surfactant, and decreased lung compliance lead to acute respiratory failure.

    00:38 Some patients with ARDS develop refractory hypoxemia, which may be treated with prone positioning or ECMO.

    00:45 Some patients recover completely from ARDS, and others may suffer from lifelong respiratory impairment or even death.

    00:53 Thank you for watching our video series today.
