Question Treatment of ARDS?

I can't understand the treatment of ARDS? why the fiO2 should be kept under 50%? what is meant by maintaining the plateau pressure of less than 30 cm of water?

I still wonder who people still apply for CK exam before Step 1

If you have done Step 1 and it will make your life much much easier when you prep for the CK, you'll know what's peak pressure and you'll know how high Oxygen concentration is toxic and might be the reason of ARDS.
