abstract

  • High levels of SP-D within 48┬áh after ICU admission might serve as a diagnostic marker for ARDS in patients hospitalized in medical ICU. Further prospective trials are required to validate the diagnostic role of SP-D in ARDS, and if its usefulness is greater in direct than in indirect ARDS, as well as across different strata of severity of ARDS.
