As respiratory failure is defined as a life-threatening deterioration of oxygenation, CO2 elimination or both. Respiratory failure is caused by a deterioration of gas exchange, reduction in ventilation or a combination thereof. To the usual clinical signs include dyspnea, use of accessory respiratory muscles, tachypnea, tachycardia, increased sweating, cyanosis, a change in the level of consciousness and, without treatment, clouding, cardiac arrest and death. The diagnosis is made clinically essentially. Blood gas analysis and X-rays support the diagnosis. Appropriate treatment requires intensive medical care in general. These include the treatment of the disorder underlying sufficient O2 supply, regulation of pulmonary secretion and, if necessary, mechanical breathing support.

The respiratory system oxygenated and eliminating CO2 from the venous blood. Respiratory failure can be divided afterwards so that the main fault is seen in inadequate oxygenation or in insufficient elimination of CO2 (and thus inadequate ventilation). However, in numerous disorders both criteria are met. Although numerous transient therapeutic measures are possible respiratory failure often require ventilation therapy.
