OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that prone position ventilation, nitric oxide, and almitrine bismesylate, each acting by a different mechanism to improve arterial oxygenation, could exert additive beneficial effects when used in combination in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized, interventional study. SETTING Medical and surgical intensive care units at a university tertiary care center. PATIENTS Twelve patients with ARDS and… CONTINUE READING
