Extract

Acute lung injury was the focus of the 41st Annual Thomas L. Petty Aspen Lung Conference. ARDS and acute lung injury had also been the topic 5 years previously and initially, in organizing the conference, we were concerned that there was not sufficient evolution in the field to justify a return to the same subject within such a short interval. Our concerns were rapidly laid to rest as we generated our first list of topics that we hoped could be covered. Our enthusiasm for a review of advances in acute lung injury grew as the conference took form. We believe that our enthusiasm for the topics covered was shared by the participants in the meeting and will be shared by readers of the summaries of the presentations.
