Abstract

According to our current understanding, the development of interstitial edema is the most important feature of the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). It is not known whether such increased permeability occurs immediately after trauma or is instead largely associated with the later development of a sepsis-like syndrome. However, knowing when it occurs is of critical importance if suspected biochemical and cellular factors are to be correlated with lung damage. Trying to determine whether trauma leads to a lung capillary permeability increase via the activation of neutrophils, for example, requires an understanding of when this permeability increase first occurs and how it subsequently develops.
