PhD defence ceremony

For intensive care unit (ICU) patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a syndrome where the lungs do not work effectively, a variety of ventilator settings can be used. There is an increasing notion that similar associations may exist between these potentially modifiable ventilation parameters and outcomes in ICU patients without ARDS. Ary Serpa Neto investigates the associations between three ventilator settings – tidal volume size, positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and driving pressure – and the outcome in ICU patients without ARDS and in surgery patients.
