Thousands of people every year find themselves in Intensive Care suffering a life-threatening illness - and many will experience collapsed lungs. There is no definitive way to best restore the lungs after collapse - sometimes it's done using a ventilator, other times they are manually inflated.
Physiotherapist Matthew Linnane wants to reduce the uncertainty around this process, and identify the best method to restore the lungs of critically ill patients. During his research Matthew will test and trial a range of methods using mechanical and manual pumps, ventilators and suction to create a procedure to improve patient recovery.
This project has the potential to help thousands of people every week!
