Current Research Projects
Volume guarantee ventilation in preterm infants with frequent episodes of hypoxemia: A Randomized cross over study evaluating role of volume guarantee in preventing hypoxemic episodes in routine clinical conditions
- Longitudinal study of cerebral oxygenation, perfusion and function following intracranial haemorrhage in preterm infants: Observational case-matched controlled study comparing cerebral oxygenation, cardiac output, SVC flow and aEEG over time in infants with and without ICH.
- Synchronized Nasal Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation in preterm infants: Physiological study comparing effect of synchronization on oxygenation and ventilation in preterm infants.
- First extubation failure and prolonged ventilator dependency. Analysis of associated factors and respiratory outcomes: A retrospective data analysis effect of first extubation failure and prolonged ventilator dependency on respiratory outcomes and factors associated with it.
- Use of Caffeine to reduce length of mechanical ventilation in preterm infants: A prospective double blind randomized controlled trial of effect of caffeine on duration of ventilation prior to first successful extubation.
