Article of the month: ARDS associated acute brain injury: from the lung to the brain

Studies have established a complex connection between the brain and the lungs in patients with acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Complications in ARDS-associated brain dysfunction is one of the most common complications in critically ill ARDS patients and represents one of the most frequent organ insufficiencies, often persisting months after hospital discharge.


A potential aid to this is a protective ventilator strategy which could reduce or even minimize further inflammation. This article reviews the possible influence of mechanical ventilation on ALI-associated acute brain injury.
