Research focuses on: With Drs. Andy Pellett and Ben de Boisblanc, we study the pulmonary circulation. Previous studies have investigated hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction, and more recently, the pulmonary artery occlusion method for the determination of pulmonary capillary pressure. We are currently investigating mechanisms involved in ventilator-induced injury, with an emphasis on the contribution of the pulmonary endothelium and alterations in pulmonary vascular pressures.
