It seems likely that persistent elevation of these inflammation prolongs their requirement for invasive ventilatory support and contributes to the high morbidity and mortality seen in patients with ARDS . In a prospective study wherein different mediators were analyzed, antithrombin III, protein C, and a-2-macroglobulin demonstrated differences between survivors and non-survivors in an early phase of ARDS. Progressive normalization of these measurements occurred with improvement of ARDS [47,48].
