Clinical and experimental pulmonary medicine

Our group conducts experimental and clinical research to study effects of hypoxia and other pulmonary diseases om heart and lungs.

We are focused around

  • Hypoxia
    Experimental and clinical research focused on effects of alveolar hypoxia on the organism, and mechanisms involved in hypoxia-related conditions. Cell-, animal-, and clinical studies. Evaluation and treatment of patients suffering from hypoventilation.
  • Training and respiratory physiology
    Training of patients suffering from various diseases, with special emphasis on patients surgically treated for lung cancer, and effect of various diseases and treatment strategies on cardio-respiratory Fitness.
  • Allergy
    Clinical and biochemical effects of specific immunotherapy.
  • Bronchoscopy
    Effects of bronchoscopic intervention during mechanical ventilation. Experimental and clinical studies.

  • Effects of bronchoscopic intervention during mechanical ventilation. Experimental and clinical studies.
  • Monitoring non-invasive ventilation; what should be the basic tools?
