a. Acute Respiratory failure is either hypoxemic or hypercapnic.
b. Hypoxemia is most often due to V/Q mismatch (shunt effect/dead space effect) and less often due to diffusion abnormalities and hypoventilation.
c. Hypercapnia is most often due to hypoventilation (CNS, Mechanical of Fatigue).
d. Hypoxemia is managed with oxygen supplementation, removing airway obstruction, recruitment and preventing de- recruitment.
e. Hypercapnia is managed by improving the tidal volume and/or rate.
f. Mechanical ventilation is the most effective tool in the cascade of management strategies for acute respiratory failure
