The findings of the cancelled study may be sufficient to change treatment of patients with ARDS, Dr. B. Taylor Thompson, of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, wrote in an accompanying editorial. "[Beta-2] agonist treatment in patients with ARDS should be limited to the treatment of clinically important reversible airway obstruction and should not be part of routine care," Thompson recommended.

"There are no magic bullets for this syndrome," said B. Taylor Thompson, MD, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the medical ICU at Massachusetts General Hospital.
And while physicians have in recent years looked to steroids to treat ARDS, the drugs have been overused. At the same time, results from the latest round of studies have led Dr. Thompson to have "diminished enthusiasm for steroids."
He acknowledged that giving methylprednisolone to patients with ARDS-particularly early in its course-does seem to help in the short term, improving lung injury scores and helping patients come off ventilators faster.
That's why Dr. Thompson recommended that hospitalists reserve steroids for "a subset of patients with severe ARDS who are free from infection and who are not responding to other forms of care."
