The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) was defined in 1994 by the American-European Consensus Conference (AECC); since then, issues regarding the reliability and validity of this definition have emerged. [] Key Method A draft definition proposed 3 mutually exclusive categories of ARDS based on degree of hypoxemia: mild (200 mm Hg < PaO2/FIO2 ≤ 300 mm Hg), moderate (100 mm Hg < PaO2/FIO2 ≤ 200 mm Hg), and severe (PaO2/FIO2 ≤ 100 mm Hg) and 4 ancillary variables for severe ARDS: radiographic severity…

New Definition of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
TLDR
An international expert panel to revise the ARDS definition from September 30 to October 2, 2011, Berlin, Germany, addressed some of the limitations of the AECC definition by incorporating current data, physiologic concepts, and clinical trials to develop a new definition of ARDS (Berlin definition).
Corticosteroid Treatment for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.
TLDR
The Berlin definition of ARDS may support future clinical studies of novel treatments by increasing diagnostic reliability and the enabling the more precise classification of patients according to the disease severity, and the presence of strong publication bias is detected.
A Clinical Classification of the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome for Predicting Outcome and Guiding Medical Therapy*
TLDR
The degree of lung dysfunction established by a PaO2/FIO2 of 150 mm Hg and a PEEP of 10 cm H2O demonstrated that ARDS is not a homogeneous disorder and is a series of four subsets that should be considered for enrollment in clinical trials and for guiding therapy.
Diagnosing acute respiratory distress syndrome in resource limited settings: the Kigali modification of the Berlin definition
TLDR
The need for a universally applicable ARDS definition was reinforced by advances in supportive care that can be implemented in resource poor settings, and research demonstrating the variable impact of positive end expiratory pressure on hypoxemia, the validity of using pulse oximetry rather than arterial blood gas to categorize hypoxemic, and the accuracy of lung ultrasound support the use of the Kigali modification of the Berlin definition.
The international epidemiology of acute respiratory distress syndrome: how can we think locally and measure globally?*.
TLDR
The Brazilian critical care community, in addition to being well organized (with two critical care societies and its BRICNet), has and will continue to make important contributions to the authors' understanding of lung injury.
The new definition for acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome: is there room for improvement?
TLDR
It is proposed that both the use of P/F ratio after some stabilization (first 24 h) and theUse of compliance stratified at 0.4 ml/cm H2O/kg ideal body weight might improve the stratification of patients.
Application of the Berlin definition in children with acute respiratory distress syndrome
TLDR
The revised Berlin definition (BD) showed better predictive validity for mortality in adults with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and could be adopted to severity classifications and predict pediatric ARDS mortality better than the AECCD.
Lung Imaging in ARDS
TLDR
The definition of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has been recently revised with the new Berlin definition and three mutually exclusive categories of ARDS based on the degree of hypoxemia were identified.
Pediatric Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome: Definition and Epidemiology
TLDR
In 2015, the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury Consensus Conference (PALICC) published specific definitions for pediatric ARDS and those gauged to be at risk for PARDS, as well as recommendations regarding management and suggested priorities for future research.

TLDR
How acute respiratory distress syndrome is defined has a significant impact on the results of randomized, controlled trials and epidemiologic studies and can contribute to clinical trials that have failed to detect a potential true treatment effect.
An early PEEP/FIO2 trial identifies different degrees of lung injury in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
A systematic method of assessing severity of lung injury is required for enrollment of patients with ARDS into randomized controlled trials and patients meeting current American-European Consensus Conference ARDS criteria may have highly variable levels of lung injuries and outcomes.

Incidence and Mortality after Acute Respiratory Failure and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland
To determine the incidence and 90-d mortality of acute respiratory failure (ARF), acute lung injury (ALI), and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), we carried out an 8-wk prospective
Clinical risks for development of the acute respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
Primary factors associated with increased risk for ARDS in clinical risk subgroups include an elevated Acute Physiologic and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score in patients with sepsis and increased APACHEII and Injury Severity Scores (ISS) in trauma victims.
Screening of ARDS patients using standardized ventilator settings: influence on enrollment in a clinical trial
TLDR
The use of standardized ventilator settings to screen and enroll ARDS patients in a clinical trial of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) significantly impacted the PaO2/FIO2 ratio and therefore the ARDS prevalence and trial enrollment.
Interobserver variability in applying a radiographic definition for ARDS.
TLDR
The radiographic criterion used in the current AECC definition for ALI-ARDS showed high interobserver variability when applied by expert investigators in the fields of mechanical ventilation and ARDS.
Eight-year trend of acute respiratory distress syndrome: a population-based study in Olmsted County, Minnesota.
TLDR
Despite an increase in patients' severity of illness, number of comorbidities, and prevalence of major ARDS risk factors, the incidence of ARDS in this suburban community decreased by more than half.
Incidence and mortality of acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome in three Australian States.
TLDR
Although the incidences of ALI and ARDS are higher and the mortality rates are lower than those reported from studies in other countries, multicenter international studies are required to exclude methodological differences as the cause for this finding.
The value of positive end-expiratory pressure and Fio2 criteria in the definition of the acute respiratory distress syndrome*
TLDR
At Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Network hospitals, the addition of baseline positive end-expiratory pressure would not have increased the value of PaO2/Fio2 for predicting mortality of acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome patients and effects of two study interventions were similar in mild and severe hypoxemia subsets as defined by PaO 2/fio2 ratios.
