Does Placenta Accreta Cause Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Leak: Heroin itself, as well as the many substances used to "cut" the heroin (think of it like the drug dealer watering down the drink, only ts the heroin being diluted, usually with talk, but any white powder, even bleach) can all cause direct injury the lung's blood vessel and lining, resulting in leak of plasma and fluid into the lung. This is exactly what ARDS is, pulmonary edema from leaky vessels. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Fluid in lungs: ARDS ( first called da nang lung as it was seen in the wounded in the vietnam war) is seen with many kinds of injuries to the lung either direct like pneumonia, or indirect like traumatic injury). Inflammation starting in the lung or elsewhere causes the lung to become fluid filled, stiff and leads to respiratory failure. Treatment is mechanical ventilator support and treatment underlying cause. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Depends...: The length of time needed to recover from ARDS depends on the underlying cause. Many things can cause ARDS including infection, pulmonary embolus, cardiac causes, etc. Once the underlying cause is treated, recovery can begin. Patients who recover from ARDS usually face a lengthy recovery process, including some type of rehabilitation so encouraging the patient during this time is needed. ...Read more
Depends...: The speed of recovery from adult respiratory distress syndrome, ards, depends on the underlying cause of the ards. For example, if it is due to infection, the appropriate antibiotics are needed. It will take time for the lung injury to heal, regardless of the cause. Patients who recover from ARDS typically require a lengthy recovery process, including some form of rehabilitation. Patience is key. ...Read more
When it happends: The frequency of respiratory distress tends to increase as the term of pregnancy decreases, reaching about 50% before 36 wks in males. It can occur in term babies, particularly diabetic mothers & I have seen some 30 wk premi's that never had it. Other conditions like lung fluid retention, amniotic fluid aspiration & neonatal pneumonia can have an identical presentation in the newborn period. ...Read more
ARDS...: In adult respiratory distress syndrome, ards, there is a severe lung reaction from some inciting event like infection, trauma, pulmonary embolus, cardiac causes, etc. The lungs develop severe, bilateral interstitial changes and the patient usually requires mechanical ventilation while the underlying cause is diagnosed and treated. ...Read more
Absolutely: There have been many studies showing excellent lung function in children who suffered from respiratory distress syndrome as premies. However, these babies may be more susceptible to long term consequences to the developing lungs of viral infections, cigarette smoke and allergens. ...Read more
Severe SOB: ARDS is severe shortness of breath caused by an insult and inflamatory response to the lungs. Its not cardiogenic and can be infectious, toxic, or autoimmmune.Some pts need to placed on a ventilator while recovering.Breathing treatments, antiobiotics, steroids as needed.The source should be sought out to target therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ARDS: A lung injury caused by many different conditions where the membrane separating the air space from the blood space becomes porous allowing fluid to fill up the air spaces and prevent o2 transport. The lung becomes stiff and difficult to inflate increasing the work of breathing. Most people will require a ventilator and ICU care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Generally respiratory distress following c section is because of fluid in the lungs that can take few hours to clear up , other times it really depends on the reason for the c section. If the c section is done because of fetal distress it indicates there was some problem already and c section is only incidental. ...Read more
Surfactant deficienc: We build our lungs in stages like building a house. One of the final stages is the production of a soapy material called surfactant that lines the inside of air sacs & prevents the sacs from deflating after air breathing starts.Infants that are not making enough surfactant to keep air sacs open so many will deflate leading to distress. Assistance is needed until a baby starts making more surfacta. ...Read more
Supportive: Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a scarring/inflammatory reaction in the lungs due to some insult: infection, injury, etc. You treat the underlying disorder, and it should get better. Some experts recommend steroids as well. But, this is controversial. Basically, you treat ARDS supportively: oxygen, a ventilator if needed, prevent complications, and the like. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
