Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

National ARDS Registry

ARDS remains one of the most common and lethal forms of respiratory failure in critically ill patients. Improvements in understanding the pathogenesis has not led to effective treatments, and heterogeneity of the condition precludes major advances. A national registry would serve to improve understanding of epidemiology, disease characterization (for definitions) and can identify incidence, outcome, disparities, treatment strategies (identifying variations and optimal), biomarkers to understand pathophysiology/pathobiology, economics, and long-term outcomes.
