Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage-induced respiratory failure.

Abstract

This case study discusses the management of type I respiratory failure (RF) secondary to diffuse alveolar-induced acute lung injury. Type I RF occurs with ventilation-perfusion mismatch resulting in inadequate oxygenation. Arterial oxygen saturation is usually less than 90% despite supplemental fraction of inspired oxygen (FIO(2)) greater than 60%. Type I… (More)
