Guidelines on the Management of ARDS

6 July 2018

Today, the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine are pleased to announce the publication of the Guidelines on the Management of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The guideline was a joint project with the Intensive Care Society and the recommendations are supported by the British Thoracic Society.

The purpose is to provide an evidence-based framework for the management of adult patients with ARDS which will inform both key decisions in the care of individual patients and broader policy. The development process was based on the previous NICE approval process and has used GRADE methodology to review an extensive evidence base. We would like to thank all of those involved in bringing this guideline to fruition!
