Description of Clinical Expertise

Dr. Ackrivo's clinical expertise includes chronic non-invasive ventilation, home mechanical ventilation, chronic respiratory failure, and respiratory care of neuromuscular disease.

Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Ackrivo's research focuses on improving the respiratory care of individuals with chronic respiratory failure. Dr. Ackrivo's research has covered topics such as risk factors for and phenotypes of respiratory failure in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, quantifying survival benefit from non-invasive ventilation, and developing novel approaches of telemonitoring home ventilation.
