Acute respiratory distress syndrome can be caused by a myriad of different conditions, and while most of them are respiratory and lung related, a disease of other organs can also cause ARDS. Due to this fact, it's necessary to do at least the basic blood chemistry and asses the function of the kidneys and liver since diseases of both can lead to ARDS. If we don't treat the underlying condition simultaneously, stabilizing a patient with ARDS can be quite challenging and in some cases downright impossible.
