Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Successfully Treated with Low Level Laser Therapy

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a medical emergency, which may be precipitated by an acute injury to the lung. The injury can also follow direct chest trauma from aspiration of gastric contents or inhalation of toxic gasses. ARDS is not itself a specific disease but a syndrome - a group of symptoms and signs that make up one of the most important forms of respiratory failure.
