Example text

Only one study has compared long-term survival in patients who survived to hospital discharge and compared it to controls matched on severity of sepsis or trauma (44). Patients with sepsis had reduced long-term survival compared to patients with trauma, regardless of the presence of ARDS; however, there was no independent effect of ARDS on long-term mortality when the analysis was restricted to patients who survived to hospital discharge. This study was limited by two factors. It was a relatively small study, so important effects of ARDS on long-term mortality may have been missed, and the authors could not completely exclude the possibility that the controls had some mild component of ALI.

Davidson and coworkers evaluated qualityof-life measures in ALI survivors as compared to matched critically ill controls who had not developed ALI and found worse results in the domains of physical functioning, general health, and vitality when measured on average two years after hospitalization (52). While the degree of impairment was not as profound as for patients with other severe lung diseases, many of these patients still found it difficult to function fully and to return to work. In most studies and clinical reports, patients described feelings of fatigue, memory loss, depression, and fear of relapse.
