Short Research Description

The major focus of my research and the Eldridge laboratory involves integrative cardiopulmonary physiology and pathophysiology. Of particular interest are cardiopulmonary interactions in congenital and acquired lung disease (bronchopulmonary dysplasia, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, asthma). My laboratory uses isolated heart-lung preparations, non-anaesthetized and anaesthetized animal models and humans in our investigations. The laboratory has specific expertise in the use of invasive methods including right-heart and pulmonary artery catheterization, state-of-the-art echocardiographic and MRI methods. We often use exercise and hypoxia to as physiologic stressors that often uncover subtle cardiopulmonary pathophysiology.
