Intuitively it would seem that antiarrhythmic therapy that is effective in preventing arrhythmia should prevent SCD. However, placebo-controlled trials performed in people have in fact demonstrated that the contrary may be true. The administration of the class la agents encainide and flecainide to a population of people with asymptomatic ventricular arrhythmias was associated with higher mortality than placebo despite the fact that the drugs had been demonstrated to be effective in the prevention of premature ventricular complexes.
This is primarily due to a reflex sympathoadrenal response to impaired cardiac performance. As the body attempts to improve perfusion to the vital organs, arteriolar vasoconstriction in the skin, muscle, kidney, spleen, and gastrointestinal tract allows blood to be shunted centrally to the brain and heart. In shock, however, this compensatory response may be inadequate. The functions of the kidney are critically dependent on perfusion and oliguria is a common manifestation of shock. Activation of the coagulation cascade is common, although disseminated intravascular coagulation is not often clinically evident at initial presentation.
Should ARDS patients receive diuretics? The use of diuretics in pulmonary edema is controversial. Diuretics will lower capillary hydrostatic pressure, therefore slowing the transudation of fluid into the pulmonary interstitium. Diuretics should be used cautiously in these patients. 13.

Are there new therapies currently being investigated in the treatment of ARDS?
