We propose a prospective randomized clinical trail to evaluate the impact of intensive medical nutrition therapy (IMNT) in malnourished patients with ARDS on short and long-term outcomes. Participant's (N = 200) will be randomized to receive either standard care (SC e.g. ad lib feeding of standard food) or IMNT provided early as EN and continued as intensive diet therapy tailored to maximize oral intake until hospital discharge. Primary outcomes evaluated include infections while hospitalized, immune parameters (CD4 and CD8 cells, serum IL-10 and leptin levels,l numbers of T regulatory cells and markers for T cell anergy), days on mechanical ventilation, in the ICU and hospital , and changes in fat free mass(measured by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry), weight, muscular weakness (measured as hand grip strength), fatigue (measured as distanced traveled in 6-minute walk) and pulmonary function.

A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.
A syndrome characterized by progressive life-threatening RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY in the absence of known LUNG DISEASES, usually following a systemic insult such as surgery or major TRAUMA.
The hospital unit in which patients with respiratory conditions requiring special attention receive intensive medical care and surveillance.
Acute respiratory illness in humans caused by the Muerto Canyon virus whose primary rodent reservoir is the deer mouse Peromyscus maniculatus. First identified in the southwestern United States, this syndrome is characterized most commonly by fever, myalgias, headache, cough, and rapid respiratory failure.
