In brief: ARDS

Most common cause of death in patients with ARDS is muti system organ failure.
Infections and respiratory failure are two other important causes of mortality.

In brief: See below

There are many causes of ARDS with infection being extremely common.
Others include shock and trauma. ARDS is one of the worst forms of lung injury and has a high mortality rate despite the best efforts of physicians. Unfortunately the ventilator which keeps the patient oxygenated during the process can also create lung injury.
