Better understanding of Oxygen therapy, various types of non-invasive and mechanical ventilation, positioning, modes is vital for every clinician working in the ICU. Globally, ARDS affects more than 3 million people a year but it has acquired an altogether different meaning during the current pandemic and needs to be looked into deeply.
