Can someone get ARDS more than once?
We are aware and have people in our care and support network who
have been diagnosed with ARDS more than once. To date, we have not seen anyone who
has been diagnosed more than twice. Further, so far this has been a very rare
occurrence. Also, we are unaware at this time of any scientifically or medically
valid reason why someone may not have ARDS hit more than once if appropriate precipitating
condition(s) once again arise. The body is very complex, and much about ARDS remains
a mystery; but if the body has reacted in a way as to have ARDS arise once, the body
might well do so again if the same or similar conditions arise in the future.
