Research group „ventilation, weaning and pulmonary monitoring“

German version

Monitoring of transpulmonary pressure and electrical impedance tomography (EIT)) can potentially detect lung-harming events during ventilation and weaning such as atelectasis, hyperinsufflation and pendelluft.

During the COVID 19 pandemic our research group assessed the role of transpulmonary pressure monitoring in the management of COVID 19 associated ARDS (CARDS).Furthermore, this group investgated the impact of inhaled nitric oxide (NO) on the outcome of patients suffering from CARDS.

Currently, this research group focuses on the optimization / individualization of ventilation and ventilator weaning by using modern pulmonary monitoring such as transpulmonary pressure monitoring and electrical impedance tomography.
