  • ARDS. A disorder of the lung tissue caused by infection, shock, burns, or other insults in which the capillaries become leaky and the air spaces fill with fluid. With ARDS, the lung tissue loses its watertight seal and becomes soggy; it can't absorb gases, even with 100 percent oxygen on a ventilator. Once a patient develops ARDS, it's usually the point of no return.
