The host defence response (HDR) to insults is similar regardless of the tissue involved and consists of an interactive network of simultaneously activated pathways that act in synergy to increase the host's chance of survival. Among this cascade of integrated pathways, three aspects of the HDR, inflammation, coagulation and tissue repair, are analysed separately to explain the histological and physiological changes occurring at the tissue level in unresolving acute respiratory distress syndrome… CONTINUE READING
