Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A small, portable breath monitor can quickly and accurately detect acute respiratory distress syndrome, researchers report.

To detect the condition today, doctors rely heavily on their own judgment and time-consuming tests. The researchers say their new technology could improve survival rates and lower the cost of care.
