Acute Respiratory Infections

The study will use residual blood collected from clinical samples collected around the time of meeting study inclusion to identify subphenotypes of subjects with shared underlying protein biomarker profiles, correlate subphenotypes with PICU morality, and assess degree of overlap between subphenotypes and classical syndromic definitions.

The LUng iNjury Group at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is dedicated to advancing the care of children who have difficulty breathing, with a focus on hospitalized children with severe respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation.

The study goal is to risk stratify pediatric (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) ARDS patients and to identify sub-phenotypes with shared biology in order to appropriately target therapies in future trials.
