How To Remember Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Signs & Symptoms?

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a serious lung disorder that arises when the lungs are unable to give enough oxygen to the body’s organs. It is characterised by quick onset of difficulty breathing, low oxygen levels in the blood, and inflammation in the lungs. ARDS can be caused by a multitude of reasons, including pneumonia, sepsis, trauma, and lung injury by inhaling toxic substances.
