ARDS acute respiratory distress syndrome, is a pulmonary deficiency caracterized by inflammation, permeability in the lungs, and collapsed alveoli resulting in hypoxemia. The syndrome appears along with a other pathologies and mechanical ventilation is used to keep the patient alive while the main cause is treated. Appropriate ventilation reduces the mortality rate. In this project data was calculated and extracted from lung CT scans to help doctors assess ventilation-parameter settings and reduce collateral damage produced by an unfitting ventilation.
