BREATHING EASIER: OPTIMISING NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION OF PRETERM INFANTS
Grant number: 1088279 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
Every year in Australia more than 6000 premature babies need breathing support after birth. My research focuses on improving the application of ‘non-invasive’ breathing supports for premature babies. These therapies can avoid the baby needing to be connected to a mechanical breathing machine, thus reducing the risk of damage to the baby’s fragile lungs. My vision is to better understand the way non-invasive breathing supports work, and to provide world-first evidence for their use.
