Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a mixture of different pathophysiological entities, resulting in a comparable clinical picture of lung inflammation with bilateral infiltrates and severe oxygenation impairment without a primary cardiogenic cause. The different underlying causes of the syndrome explain the partially heterogeneous results regarding treatment strategies, for example, the different responses to PEEP (positive end–expiatory pressure). Further understanding of the underlying respiratory physiology and application of individualized therapies warrant both better understanding of the pathophysiology and monitoring the individualized response to changes in a ventilatory setting at bedside. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect clinical and experimental scientific reports that might improve our understanding of the syndrome and provide information to improve ventilator settings.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
