Ventilator induced lung injury

Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Cereda's research targets functional imaging and pathophysiology of acute lung injury and mechanical ventilation. The overall aim of his research is the development of imaging markers of ventilator induced lung injury and their use to improve outcomes of ventilated patients.
