Extract

We recently reported that a history of chronic alcohol abuse significantly increases the risk of developing ARDS. Due to the use of a less rigorous definition of chronic alcohol abuse and the application of a rigid definition of ARDS, this preliminary study may have underestimated the incidence of chronic alcohol abuse and ARDS. In addition, we were unable to account for several potentially important confounding variables such as liver disease and malnutrition. Furthermore, the effect of chronic alcohol abuse on the severity of dysfunction in other organ systems was not examined.
