Lungpacer Medical, Inc. Presents Preclinical Data at American Thoracic Society Conference, May 2018, San Francisco, California

This multidisciplinary conference attracts pulmonary and critical care clinicians from around the world.  Liz Rohrs presented her preclinical work, which concluded that ventilation in four paced animals showed a greater posterior distribution of ventilation during paced breaths than four control animals (p < 0.001). PaO2/FiO2 ratios significantly worsened (p = 0.04) over 50 hours of mechanical ventilation in the control subjects, whereas the experimental subjects had no significant change.
