ALI consigned to history..

Ruwan has sent us an article from JAMA which tells us that acute lung injury no longer exists! Good news for patients? No, not really, it’s just been renamed ‘mild ARDS’.

The article is written by a lot of clever people (including the legendary JLV who told us in no uncertain terms at the CICM ASM that this is the new terminology), so we should take a deep breath and read it.

The Berlin definition of ARDS. Enjoy.
