The study by Hudson and coworkers attempted to control for this by the epidemiological technique of restriction (21). 3-fold. 6 in drug overdose. The authors further controlled for Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) in the septic patients and injury severity in the trauma patients without a significant effect on the attributable mortality. The evidence linking mortality to ALI is not uniform and may be risk factor dependent. After adjusting for age, severity of illness, and injury severity, ALI was not statistically significantly associated with mortality in patients sustaining severe trauma.

Public health professionals are less interested in the exact pathophysiological mechanism of disease and focus more on the disease’s impact on the health of the public and on mechanisms for reducing this impact. This is a particularly important perspective on disease, if an unusual one for critical care. Understanding the public health implications of ALI places it in relation to other common diseases and helps to prioritize research and clinical funding. Understanding changes in the burden and outcome of illness tells us whether we are doing a better job at what ultimately matters: improving the health of the public.

Common among most published reports is a mortality rate of approximately 60%, considerably higher than the 30–40% currently quoted for adults with ALI. Unknown for children with ALI is whether their deaths are primarily due to respiratory failure, multiorgan failure, or central nervous system damage. While increasing interest is focused on functional and quality-of-life outcomes in adults, more work is needed to evaluate such outcomes as school performance, learning disabilities, or socialization problems in children.
