Sindrome acuta da stress respiratorio (ARDS)

  • Reinhard Larsen
  • Thomas Ziegenfuß


L’esatta incidenza dell’ ARDS non è nota, poiché nella maggior parte delle diagnosi non viene impiegata una definizione univoca. Si può, comunque, affermare che sussiste una frequenza di circa 2–8 casi di malattia per 100.000 abitanti.
