Abstract
In this paper the authors present an unconventional method of intravenous laser therapy applied to nine patients treated in ICU for acute respiratory insufficiency. The laser therapy treatment was applied twice in 24 hours by introducing a quartz light pipe into a peripheral vein of the forearm connected to the He-Ne laser produced by Amber, Poland. In order to irradiate the whole circulating blood the procedure lasted twenty minutes. The initial observation showed the improvement of the respiratory parameters and the decrease of leucocytosis. During the intravenous laser therapy the ARDS was not observed in the patients, despite the existence of risk factors.
