Abstract:

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a clinical condition following a diffuse inflammatory insult to the lung parenchyma and generally occurs secondary to a primary disease process. The clinical criteria for ARDS are acute onset of respiratory distress, bilateral pulmonary infiltration on thoracic radiographs, hypoxemia and absence of clinical evidence of left atrial hypertension. Twenty three dogs with ARDS were recruited in this study. Dogs presented with criteria for ARDS had respiratory distress, tachypnea, labored breathing at rest and cyanosis. Blood gas analysis revealed hypoxemia, hypercapnia, hypocapnia, respiratory alkalosis and increased alveolar to arterial oxygen gradient in these cases. Increased pulmonary interstitial and bilateral multilobar alveolar infiltrates were detected in thoracic radiography. This study concluded that ARDS leads to primary and secondary inflammatory changes leads to hypoxemia and abnormal pulmonary infiltrative patterns.
