In brief: Supportive
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (sars) is a viral illness from the same family as some cold viruses.
It can cause respiratory failure & death.There have been no cases since 2004.There is no cure; treatment is supportive, which includes maintaining blood pressure w fluids, maintaining good oxygen level (can require a ventilator), & keeping the patient going until the immune system fights it off.
