Objective Our ability to predict which critically ill patients will develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is imprecise. Based on the effects of diabetes mellitus on the inflammatory cascade, we hypothesized that a history of diabetes might alter the incidence of ARDS. Design A prospective multicenter study. Setting Intensive care units at four university medical centers. Patients One hundred thirteen consecutive patients with septic shock. Interventions None. Measurements and Main… Expand
