Summary of "The incidence of ARDS and associated mortality in severe TBI utilizing the Berlin definition."

The incidence of ARDS in severe TBI is poorly reported. Recently a new definition for ARDS was proposed: the Berlin Definition. The percentage of patients represented by TBI in the Berlin criteria study is limited. This study describes the incidence and associated mortality of ARDS in TBI patients.
