(6) In 1967, Ashbaugh et al (1) coined the now well-known term acute respiratory distress syndrome to describe a clinical syndrome characterized by "an acute onset of tachypnea, hypoxaemia, and loss of compliance after a variety of stimuli." In 1994, the American-European Consensus Conferences (AECC) on ARDS published a statement on definitions, mechanisms, relevant outcomes, and clinical trial coordination (7) that attempted to delineate and guide treatment; however, there remained some confusion due to overlapping criteria applied to the definition of ALI and ARDS, specifically in relation to hypoxia levels and imaging interpretation.
