Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a multifactorial problem in the pediatric population. It has been characterized by progression to respiratory failure with hypoxemia, diffuse infiltrates on chest radiographs, decreased lung compliance, requiring the application of positive end-expiratory pressure to improve oxygenation. A lot of literature has been published in the explanation of ARDS to make it simpler and more understandable for improving the survival of patients since 1967 to PALICC Conference in 2015 and its still going on. This Book is also a favorable addition in this regard. It has 17 chapters, starting from the historical background of the ARDS. Book has separate chapters on all aspects of ARDS, mentioning the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors and UpToDate all possible ventilatory and nonventilatory treatment options. It has also discussed the controversial treatment options of ARDS. This Book is very useful, especially for intensivists. It is in easily language and fluently readable. A must-read book.
