    1. Acute lung injury (ALI): A syndrome of acute and persistent lung inflammation with increased vascular permeability characterized by four clinical features: Acute onset (within days of exposure to predisposing direct or indirect causes); Diffuse bilateral infiltrates on x .   This book provides an overview of acute lung injury and repair, describes current animal models to study lung injury and reviews current methodologies to study and measure lung injury and repair. Special emphasis is given to state of the art techniques and methods and relevance to .

    Prior to , published studies used nonuniform definitions of ARDS, prompting an American European Consensus Conference (AECC) to develop standardized definitions for ARDS and acute lung injury (ALI)—a broader category that encompasses ARDS. 3 The AECC definitions included the acute onset of illness, bilateral chest radiographic infiltrates consistent with pulmonary edema, poor systemic. Acute lung injury (ALI) represents a serious heterogenous pulmonary disorder with high mortality. Despite improved understanding of the pathophysiology, the efficacy of standard therapies such as.

    In summary, Acute Lung Injury and Repair seeks to provide a resource that future investigators can use to explore the pathogenesis of acute lung injury/ARDS. Logically, the book starts with a discussion of different mouse models that are available for study. The book then progresses to the techniques available for the analysis of different tissue samples. The last 2 chapters are a departure from the mouse model . Acute lung injury (ALI) and its more severe form, acute respiratory distress syndrome, are defined as severe complications with systemic inflammatory responses in the air spaces and lung parenchyma [1].

In this book, authors review the current knowledge on acute lung injury (ALI). ALI/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is characterized by diffuse alveolar damage, alveolar capillary leakage, lung edema, neutrophil-derived inflammation, and surfactant dysfunction.

These changes lead to clinical manifestations of decreased lung compliance, severe hypoxemia, and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates. From the Inside Flap.
