Respiratory failure: ARDS is the acute respiratory distress syndrome - or sudden onset of low blood oxygen levels and difficulty breathing usually due to injury or severe infection. ARDS is a severe, life-threatening condition that requires specialized treatment in an intensive care unit - usually with a mechanical ventilator to provide oxygen and support breathing.
