Careful: Delicate situation. Treating pain is essential but some pain meds can cause side effects au has low blood pressure and sleepiness. Patients with liver failure are more susceptible. It all depends on the goals of care of the patient. Good luck.

Above normal range : Potassium is a natural element important for bodily functions. The body regulates its blood levels very tightly. Too high or too low causes problems, such as heart rhythm (life threatening). High levels in blood can be caused by a multitude of things. Common and important causes are: kidney disease, medication side effect, acidity in blood... First thing to do is confirm by repeating the bloodwork.

Case by case: Large studies suggest that overall mortality from ARDS has decreased over the years to just under 30%. But these are just statistics and every patient is different. In general the healthier they were before ards, and the least number of organs other than lungs involved (kidney, heart, blood pressure...) the better the outcome. Hang in there!
