The ARDS Support Center has received an
article that was printed in the New England Journal of Medicine.
It is titled "Medical Progress: The Acute Respiratory
Distress Syndrome which was written by Dr. Matthay and his colleague
Dr. Lorraine Ware. Dr. Matthay sent us the article. He is
the ARDS Investigator at Moffitt Hospital which is affiliated with
the University of California, San Francisco. This center is
part of the ARDSNetwork. After reviewing the article, we find
it to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date article we have seen
and encourage all those who have a loved one in ARDS crisis to
obtain a copy and discuss the article with the attending physicians.
