Maybe aspiration. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. There are three things that come to mind. First, being in a hospital places her at risk for infection due to exposure to others with infections, and the healthcare workers. Secondly, she may have had an aspiration event, causing additional lung injury to cause this picture. Last, sometimes the ARDS that follows near-drowning is delayed. Good luck! Read more...
