Description of Research
Our research focus is part of the Pulmonary Imaging and Bioengineering Laboratory. We study the effect of bronchoconstriction on regional ventilation and how ventilatory patterns and mechanical ventilation affect the emergence of ventilation defects during bronchoconstriction. Our aims are to understand the interdependencies among airways that lead to the emergence of ventilation defects, how internal and external factors affect that behavior, and what conditions may prevent or help to recover from ventilation defects. Also, we develop novel methods for pulmonary imaging and image analysis to expand and improve our pathophysiological studies in asthma, COPD, ventilator induced lung injury and other diseases.
