Acute Lung Injury Summary

Description: A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).

Also Known As: Acute Lung Injuries; Lung Injuries, Acute; Lung Injury, Acute
