Critically ill patients requiring mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure often receive

Critically ill patients requiring mechanical ventilation for
acute respiratory failure often receive large volumes of fluid in the form of
intravenous medications, maintenance fluids, and nutrition (enteral or
parenteral). Excessive or nonessential fluid administration should be avoided
in patients with ARDS because they have “leaky capillaries” and are remarkably
sensitive to changes in pulmonary vascular hydrostatic pressure. How can
iatrogenic pulmonary edema be avoided in these patients so they can be
liberated from mechanical ventilator sooner?
