Description of Research
My research focuses on Respiratory Physiology, Mechanical Ventilation, and Airway Management. I am also interested in innovation and mainly on development of devices used to improve the quality of perioperative patient care. Ongoing projects include (1) Nasal CPAP improves the rate of mask ventilation during induction; (2) If nCPAP improves the mask ventilation in obese patient during induction of anesthesia; (3) Validation of the non-invasive cardiac output device, trans-thoracic impedance, vs. Fick method.
