Hi there! I'm trying to find information about asthma and how it could progress to ARDS (adult/acute respiratory distres syndrome) for a school paper. I have found no direct connections of asthma causing ARDS in my research. I found that ARDS can include a person suffering from severe infection or injury that develops breathing problems. At this point, I am suspecting that severe chronic cases of asthma could possibly lead to ARDS. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!
