What is respiratory distress syndrome?

An infant, several weeks old, suddenly stopped breathing. She was rushed to the hospital, and, after extensive testing announced that she had this syndrome. More testing to figure out what caused it.

    It's related to asthma (or maybe another word they use for asthma). My son was recently diagnosed with asthma and respiratory distress syndrome is a word she used while talking to me.
