It is characterized by inflammation of the lung parenchyma leading to impaired gas exchange with concomitant systemic release of inflammatory mediators causing protracted inflammation, increased vascular permeability, increased permeability of alveolar epithelial cells, extravasation of plasma and leucocyte infiltration, and frequently resulting in multiple organ failure. Since inflammation is thought… CONTINUE READING
