Lung injury or pulmonary toxicity or pulmonary injury is due to medicinal drugs mostly, particulate matter, nanoparticles and chemical compounds. Lung injury score gives the extent of acute pulmonary damage. It represents side effects on the lungs.
Acute lung injury (ALI) is a common condition that is characterized by acute severe hypoxia that is not due to left atrial hypertension. The term ALI encompasses a continuum of clinical and radiographic changes that affect the lungs with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) representing the more severe end of this continuum. Despite advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology and management of ALI, it is still associated with a high mortality.
