There are phases to ARDS. Exudative phase allows us to give ABX, Corticosteriods, Diuretics, Albumin, Vasodilators, etc. to reverse the process of ARDS. The next phase is prolific, which is damage to the surfactant producing cells. We are able to give surfactant via ETT. The Fibrotic phase is the phase that there is little we can do but support. because the lung has been remodeled by scar tissue and cannot be oxygenated. This question is misleading.
