Cognitive Dysfunction in ARDS Survivors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Over one-half of critical illness survivors experience cognitive dysfunction, and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) survivors appear at particularly high risk. Cognitive impairment can continue for years after discharge, regardless of patient age or severity of illness. The extent of cognitive impairment varies widely and diversely across particular cognitive domains. The mechanism of cognitive impairment in ARDS survivors is often multifactorial. Future studies should focus on modifiable risk factors, as well as improving long-term outcomes through cognitive rehabilitation.
