Description

This lecture reviews the immunology and pathology of sepsis-induced acute lung injury.

Objectives

Learn the definitions of ALI/ARDS
Clinical definitions of ALI/ARDS vary in humans and veterinary medicine but generally include the identification of pulmonary edema, hypoxemia and pulmonary inflammation.
Learn the phases of ALI/ARDS and understand the associated pathology
ALI/ARDS can be divided into four phases: exudative, proliferative, fibrotic and resolution. Each of these phases has specific morphologic and pathologic features.
Learn the immunologic mechanisms that lead to the initiation and resolution of ALI/ARDS
A variety of signaling mechanisms are involved in the induction of ALI/ARDS including the NF-kappa B pathway. Resolution of inflammation involves inflammatory mediator production shifting, induction of inflammatory mediators, cellular interactions, immune cell clearance, and restoration of tissue homeostasis.
