In brief: Yes

People who have a history of chronic alcoholism are at higher risk of developing ards, and people who have infection in their bloodstream (sepsis).
ARDS risk depends on velocity of injury. The amount of tissue damage is directly related to the amount of energy exchange between the penetrating object and the body part.
