Gary Nieman is an Associate Professor and Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Surgery at the Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y. Gary is also the director of the Cardiopulmonary and Critical Care Laboratory, which is a large animal translational laboratory investigating the pathophysiology and treatment of septic and traumatic shock. Specifically, Gary’s group studies the pathogenesis and treatment of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and ventilator induced lung injury (VILI). In this presentation, Mr. Nieman will present how our understanding of alveolar physiology has led to current thinking of ARDS, its treatment, and how to proactively prevent ventilator-induced lung injury.
