Abstract
Residual lung function abnormalities have been investigated in 9 children (4 boys and 5 girls) a mean 2.7 years after surviving severe adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). All patients had been artificially ventilated for an average of 9.4 days with a FiO2 greater than 0.5 for 34 hours and maximal PEEP levels in the range of 8-20 cm H2O. Since the ARDS, 3 children had presented recurrent respiratory symptoms (moderate exertional dyspnea and cough) and 2 had had evidence of fibrosis on chest radiographs. In all patients abnormal lung functions were found, i.e. ventilation inequalities (8), hypoxemia (7), and obstructive (2) and restrictive (1) lung disease. A significant correlation between respirator therapy and residual lung function was found (duration of FiO2 greater than 0.5 in hours and inspiratory plateau pressure during respirator therapy vs. ventilation inequalities and hypoxemia).
