Brief description Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe inflammatory condition of the lungs that complicates many critical illnesses and is associated with high mortality. Inappropriate settings of the mechanical ventilator can lead to a worsening outcome. The aim of this Phase II study is to compare the clinical efficiency of a novel ventilation strategy to reduce the duration of mechanical ventilation in survivors, including several lung protective settings, to that of current standard care.
