The extent to which these cognitive abnormalities are attributable to ALI or to risk conditions is unknown, but they reflect significant morbidity in these patients. B. Attributable Effect of ALI on Psychiatric Outcomes and Quality of Life To an ALI survivor, quality of life is as important as any specific physical or functional parameter. Potential problems were initially appreciated only anecdotally as clinicians saw ALI survivors in follow-up and heard their patients describe depression or difficulty at work or with relationships.

Even the terminology can be confusing. We will adopt the North American-European Consensus Conference (AECC) nomenclature and use ALI as a comprehensive term for the syndrome and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) to refer to a specific subset with more severe hypoxemia (8). There is no diagnostic test for ALI similar to troponin in myocardial infarction or serology in infectious diseases. Discharge diagnostic codes that are used to study the epidemiology of many diseases are extremely inaccurate in ALI.
