Berlin criteria for ARDS + validation

Two papers regarding definition of ARDS- JAMA (criteria) + AJRCCM (autopsy findings to validate these criteria).

It would be nice to do both papers together. I like the autopsy paper - quite impressive to see that a lot of patients that were thought to have ARDS simply had bad pneumonia or pulmonary edema + allows us to discuss sensitivity and specificity of a test.
