Pulmonary failure results when the lungs experience significant damage and are unable to supply the body and brain with oxygen. Pulmonary failure has many causes including lung cancer, physical trauma, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), aerosolized bioterrorism agents and diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pneumonia, and tuberculosis [1,2].
