High Risk for ARDS/ALI
Mechanically ventilated patients with risk factors for the development of ARDS/ALI. These factors are classified into two categories: pulmonary insults, such as pneumonia and extrapulmonary insults such as sepsis.
Low Risk for ARDS/ALI
Mechanically ventilated patients with low risk factors for the development of ARDS/ALI. These factors include mechanical ventilation for airway protection, pain management, or procedure.
- Ceramide levels in exhaled breath condensate [ Time Frame: We plan to do a single time point data collection. Exhaled breath will be collected for 20 minutes. ]Ceramide is a candidate bio marker we plan to examine to describe patterns of risk factors associated with ARDS/ALI.
