Publication Date: May 1, 2017

Key Points

Key Points

These recommendations apply only to patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and do not address questions related to pharmacologic therapies to facilitate mechanical ventilation (e.g., neuromuscular blockade), adjunctive measures (e.g., inhaled vasodilators), and other ventilatory modes (e.g., airway pressure release ventilation).

Recommendations have not been made for combined or sequential treatments with interventions included in this guideline since their potential benefits or synergies have not been explicitly studied.
