This categorization scheme for acute respiratory failure is a simple one designed for easy classification at the bedside and it introduces the concept of at risk of ALI patients that allows early identification of a subset of patients who are Table 6. 01 Prognostic Factors and Outcome of ALI 27 very likely to develop acute respiratory failure and therefore candidate to different preventive therapeutical strategies.

By contrast, patients with sepsis-associated ARDS in whom BAL macrophages increase over time have lower lung injury scores and improved survival. These observations are consistent with the interpretation that persistence of the acute inflammatory response is associated with persistence of clinical manifestations of ARDS, whereas successful recruitment of monocytes and macrophages is important to the repair process. Cytokines are significantly increased regardless of the duration of ARDS and interleukin (IL)-8 and ENA-78, two potent PMN chemoattractants, significantly correlates with PMN concentration in BAL [46].
