VASQUEZ CUELLAR, Adolfo Israel et al. Effect of aspirin on the mortality of acute respiratory distress syndrome in patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Juarez hospital in Mexico. Med. crít. (Col. Mex. Med. Crít.) [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.4, pp.230-237. ISSN 2448-8909.


To determine the effect on morbidity and mortality at 28 days with the use of aspirin in patients with ARDS.

Material and methods:

An experimental, prospective randomized clinical trial simply was conducted during the period from December 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 in the ICU of Hospital Juarez of Mexico. all patients admitted to the ICU during the study period with a diagnosis of ARDS and were divided into two groups randomly included. Group A received 100 mg of aspirin in addition to standard treatment for ARDS, group B received only standard medical treatment for ARDS. changes in the values of PaO2/FiO2, the values of the DA-aO2 and CESTAT, days of mechanical ventilation, as well as the association of the values of APACHE II score and its relationship with morbidity and mortality in both groups were quantified. Statistical T Student test was used for independent variables.


Mortality in group A was 60% versus 80% in group B. No difference was observed in both groups in the PaO2/FiO2 (p = 0.097). In group A, an average of days of mechanical ventilation of 15.8 days versus 16.8 in group B (p = 0.860, 95%) compared to the days of stay in the ICU and hospital stay was found no statistically significant difference was observed.


The use of aspirin in patients with ARDS established, regardless of severity; it does not decrease mortality, days of stay in the ICU or Hospital, nor diminish the days of mechanical ventilation, or improve PaO2/FiO2, the DAaO2, and CESTAT.
