A variety of insults (such as trauma, burns, acute pancreatitis and so on…) are accompanied by shock and often lead to the development of Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) which defines a clinical and physiological sydrome characterized by an increase in pulmonary permeability with interstitial edema, subsequent hypoxemia and severe respiratory failure and by a high rate of mortality (50 to 70% of patients) (1,2).
