In patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), oxygen consumption (VO2) is pathologically dependent on oxygen delivery (DO2). Because of alterations in ventricular function, DO2 may be inadequate to satisfy oxygen demand and may contribute to multiple-system organ failure (MSOF). To determine whether there are differences in DO2, VO2, ventricular function, and MSOF, between survivors and nonsurvivors of ARDS, we studied 29 patients without cardiac disease early in the course of… CONTINUE READING
