Due to an unfortunate error the second sentence in the second paragraph of “Discussion/Occurrence of acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome in intensive care units” was published incorrect. We herewith publish the correct sentence:

We found that about 30% of patients presented with the mild form of ALI, but that a minority of these (45.6%) did not evolve to ARDS.
