Increased pulmonary capillary permeability

ARDS results from increased pulmonary capillary permeability. which leads to noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. In cardiogenic pulmonary edema. pulmonary congestion occurs secondary to heart failure. In the initial stage of ARDS. respiratory alkalosis may arise secondary to hyperventilation; however. it does not cause ARDS. Renal failure does not cause ARDS. either.
