About the Program Director


Dr. Peter Papadakos has been actively collaborating with investigators throughout the US and Europe on a number of multicenter funded projects. Over the last 2 years he and his colleagues have been investigating how mechanical ventilation impacts on atelectasis and surfactant dysfunction. The group is also looking at the effect of sedative agents on cytokine modulation in the lungs. In addition, Dr. Papadakos is working on several research projects with national organizations such as ASA and AORN to improve human to technology interfacing when preventing electronic distraction.
