To investigate the potential role of serum and alveolar soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (sTREM-1) as a biological marker of pulmonary aspiration syndromes. Prospective cohort study. University-affiliated intensive care unit. Seventy-five patients with pulmonary aspiration and 13 controls receiving mechanical ventilation. Blood and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid samples were collected on enrollment. Soluble TREM-1 levels were measured by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent… CONTINUE READING
