55 Procoagulant activity is increased in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples from patients with ALI/ARDS, whereas fibrinolytic activity is markedly decreased or undetectable. 55,56 The concurrent changes in procoagulant and fibrinolytic activity would be expected to promote pulmonary fibrin deposition and are likely to account for the persistence of alveolar fibrin in ALI. 65,66 CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND DIAGNOSIS Symptoms of ALI/ARDS can be nonspecific and consist of dyspnea and dry cough. After the inciting event, tachypnea and tachycardia usually develop within the first 12 to 24 hours, followed by a dramatic increase in work of breathing and a rapid decrease in oxygenation, manifested as cyanosis.

Although these criteria are simple to use and are recommended for description of patient groups, they have several weaknesses. They do not specify the cause of the disorder; the description of 28 bilateral pulmonary infiltrates is nonspecific and difficult to implement reproducibly,4 and response to positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) is not considered. 5 ETIOLOGY Predispositions Critical care physicians frequently observe that patients respond differently to similar predisposing causes of ALI/ARDS and also respond differently to similar treatments.
