Acute Lung Injury (ALI)
patients who might develop acute lung injury (ALI) after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary by pass
- Acute Lung Injury After Cardiac Surgery [ Time Frame: at seven days after intervention ]to evaluate the incidence of acute lung injury (ALI) in patients undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary by pass and to identify the main predictors.Diagnosis of Acute Lung Injury (ALI) was made according to the American-European Consensus conference criteria, including acute onset, PaO2 /FiO2 <300 regardless of Positive End Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) level, bilateral and diffuse opacities on chest radiograph, absence of left ventricular failure, or history of lung disease.
- Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Length of Stay [ Time Frame: at 28 days ]If extracardiac complications, especially acute lung injury, prolonged Intensive Care Unit (ICU) length of stay due to longer mechanical ventilation.
