Respiratory Distress Syndrome Directory

There are two types of respiratory distress syndrome. One type is ARDS, or acute respiratory distress syndrome. This condition is a dangerous and fast-developing one in which a lung is injured to the point of failure. Infant respiratory distress syndrome is a condition in which the lung disorder causes breathing problems and collapsed lungs in a newborn.
