By comparing current treatment methods and using state of the art procedures and techniques, our Cardiovascular and Critical Care research areas are focused on improving outcomes for patients and informing best practice for health professionals.
Cardiovascular & Critical Care Research Objectives
Better outcomes for patients
With the aid of a bronchoscopy procedure, we are trialing the use of an effective system to improve breathing function in people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Research being undertaken into malignant pleural effusions, and the best method of draining them, will inform ongoing management of this condition and best practice standards.
Increase survival and quality of Life
Our research to determine favourable airway management procedures may help to better predict disease progression, reduce life-threatening complications and has the potential to influence best practice guidelines.
