Patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) should receive evidence-based care that includes a lungprotective ventilation strategy [32]: targeting a tidal volume of 6 ml/kg of predicted body weight, a plateau airway pressure Ä 30 cmH2 O and SpO2 88–93% or PaO2 55–80 mmHg. Moderate to severe ARDS cases (PaO2 :FiO2 < 150 mmHg) are candidates for early prone positioning [33] and early neuromuscular blockade for 48 h [34]. Proning is recommended within 36 h of ARDS onset for at least 16 h, since this approach was associated with reduced mortality compared with managing patients in the supine position [33].
