ARDS starts as inflammation, in which then leads to the failure of gas exchanges of the lungs and blood. The blood starts to be deprived of oxygen, which leads to multiple organ failure. The damaged and inflamed small blood vessels will automatically cause people to be admitted to the ICU where there is no specific treatment for ARDS.
