Researchers battle a deadly lung problem with meds, computer models

It doesn't take a whole lot to stop the tiny air sacs in your lungs from doing their jobs -- trauma, a nasty case of pneumonia or sepsis could lead to what's called Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a situation in which your blood doesn't get all the oxygen it should.

ARDS can be tricky to treat even on a good day, but that's where the big brains at the University of Michigan come in.
