- Background and objectives: The advanced lung inflammation index (ALI) was developed to assess the degree of systemic inflammation and has an association with prognosis in patients with lung malignancy. The prognostic value of ALI has not yet been evaluated in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Materials and Methods: Between January 2014 and May 2018, patients with ARDS in the medical intensive care unit (ICU) were reviewed retrospectively. The ALI value was calculated as the (body mass index x serum albumin level)/neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio. The cut-off value for distinguishing low from high ALI was defined according to receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis. Results: A total of 164 patients were analyzed. Their median age was 73 years, and 73% was male. The main cause of ARDS was pneumonia (95.7%, 157/164). ICU and in-hospital mortality rates were 59.8% (98/164) and 64% (105/164), respectively. The 30 day mortality was 60.9% (100/164). The median ALI value in non-survivors was lower than that in survivors at 30 day (3.81 vs. 7.39, p = 0.005). In multivariate analysis, low ALI value (<= 5.38) was associated with increased 30 day mortality (odds ratio, 2.944, confidence interval 1.178-7.355, p = 0.021). Conclusions: A low ALI value was associated with increased 30 day mortality in patients with ARDS.
