Given that 2 out of 8 major referral hospitals as well as 32 smaller hospitals in the state were not actively screened, the accuracy of their estimate is entirely placed on the robustness of their mathematical corrections. Villar and Slutsky21 performed a populationbased prospective cohort study in which they examined the incidence of ARDS on an isolated island with a single large hospital. 5 cases/105 population. 5 cases/105 population. Although an inception cohort was identified, the results of this study may not be generalizable to large metropolitan centers given that the incidence of blunt trauma as well as other ARDS risk factors are presumably not comparable.
