The intricacy of these stimulating and inhibiting phenomena warrants further investigations. Neutrophils are capable of synthesizing cytokines such as TNF-a [39) and produce free oxygen radicals which may enhance production of cytokines such as TNF-a or IL-Ip [40). Lung parenchymal cells are also involved in cytokine release: fibroblasts are able to produce IL-8 [41); monocytes, macrophages as well as fibroblasts produce transforming growth factor-p (TGF-P) which could playa role in the remodeling process [42).
A separate database using different patients must be employed for validation and field testing. Variables should be clearly defined and reliable. The model should reflect accurately the mortality experience of the patient sample as assessed by objective criteria. The criteria for assessing the reliability of a model are well established and include discrimination, using the area under the receiver/operator curve, and calibration, using formal goodness-of-fit testing . Models should contain a minimum number of variables to reduce the burden of data collection and the potential for error.
Some authors proposed methods to identify the presence of pulmonary edema and increased vascular permeability. Different techniques have been proposed such as the measurement of extravascular lung water (EVLW) by indicator-dilution method, the chest X-ray and computed tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and positon emission tomography. EVLW measurements and the protein concentration of alveolar edema fluid are used in clinical practice but are associated with problems in accuracy, cost and complexity [13, 14].
