The article presents information on acute renal failure and mechanical ventilation. It discusses the changes associated with mechanical ventilation can be linked to acute renal failure. It explains how pulmonary inflammation and/or rupture of alveoli affect renal function. Information is also given on research needed on lung-protective ventilation strategies.
