Experimental Intensive Care Medicine Laboratory expICMlab
The expICMlab is located at the Medical School of the University of Crete. Our research focuses on mechanisms of acute lung injury (ALI) and ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). We use mouse models of ALI and VILI to study the immune responses associated with lung injury. The lab is located at the Medical School at Voutes, room 8A4. Our equipment includes surgical microscope, 4 rodent ventilators, pneumotachs for airway pressure, flow and volume monitoring, invasive blood pressure monitoring devices, and infusion pumps. During the experimental procedures mice are sedated, ventilated and monitored like patients in the ICU. All in vitro studies are performed in collaboration with the Tsatsanis Lab at the Medical School.
