Acute lung injury in children is a syndrome of rapid onset of acute respiratory failure and require admission into intensive care units (ICU) for advanced life support. There are almost no information on epidemiology of acute lung injury. Published studies do not have information for an entire year and none of them have evaluated the degree of oxygenation failure under standard ventilator settings. The investigators will perform a 1-year prospective audit of all patients admitted with acute lung injury in a network of pediatric ICUs in Spain.

The use of venovenous extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (VV ECMO) for acute respiratory failure (ARF)/acute respiratory (ARDS) has increased since 2009. Specialized units for patients requiring VV ...
Lower tidal volumes are increasingly used in acute respiratory distress syndrome, but mortality has changed little in the last 20 yr. Therefore, in addition to ventilator settings, it is important to ...
Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.
Serious INFLAMMATION of the LUNG in patients who required the use of PULMONARY VENTILATOR. It is usually caused by cross bacterial infections in hospitals (NOSOCOMIAL INFECTIONS).
Determination, by measurement or comparison with a standard, of the correct value of each scale reading on a meter or other measuring instrument; or determination of the settings of a control device that correspond to particular values of voltage, current, frequency or other output.
Any disorder marked by obstruction of conducting airways of the lung. AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION may be acute, chronic, intermittent, or persistent.
