Acute lung injury


Acute lung injury is a widespread, variable type of lung injury characterized by a low oxygen level in the blood, non cardiogenic pulmonary edema, low lung compliance and widespread capillary leakage. ALI is caused by any event resulting in the triggering of local or systemic inflammation, principally sepsis. The term acute lung injury has been abandoned in the 2012 Berlin classification of acute respiratory distress syndrome, and this state is now called mild ARDS. For its diagnosis, it is no longer necessary to measure pulmonary capillary wedge pressure.
