Default A 75-year-old man develops with with pO2/FIO2 ratio < 200

A 75-year-old man develops increased ventilatory requirements several days after requiring intubation for respiratory failure. X-ray of the chest shows bilateral infiltrates, and based on his ventilatory settings, the ratio of the partial pressure of arterial oxygen to the fraction of inspired oxygen is 190. What is the most common underlying etiology of acute respiratory distress syndrome?

(A) Aspiration of gastric contents
(B) Drug overdose
(C) Lung or bone marrow transplantation
(D) Massive blood transfusion
(E) Near-drowning
(F) Sepsis
