Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), contagious respiratory illness that can cause a fatal form of pneumonia.
Symptoms may progress to a severe form of pneumonia, in which air sacs in the lungs fill with fluid, preventing oxygen from reaching blood cells and nourishing the other cells of the body.
Aside from regular nursing care and the use of a respirator to help breathing in severe cases, there is no effective treatment for SARS.
