Theodore Jack Iwashyna

Associate Professor Theodore "Jack" Iwashyna MD PhD
ANZIC-RC Visiting Researcher 2015

Jack was a Visiting Researcher at the ANZIC-RC in 2015 while he was on sabbatical from his role as Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine; Co-Director, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program; Faculty Associate, Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, and Research Scientist, VA Ann Arbor Center for Clinical Management Research in the USA. Jack is a critical care physician and health services researcher bringing the tools of social science and outcomes research to improve the care of patients with critical illnesses. A major focus of his current work is to define the experience of survivorship after critical illness, particularly severe sepsis and after in-hospital cardiac arrest. He is also interested in understanding how to reliably measure hospital's contribution to survivorship.

Dr Aude Garnero MD
ANZIC-RC Visiting Researcher 2013-2014

Aude was a Visiting Researcher at the ANZIC-RC from 2013 to 2014. She worked on clinical studies in mechanically ventilated intensive care patients, specifically on studies that focused on patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) using recruitment manoeuvres to promote alveolar recruitment leading to increased lung volume, in order to prevent repetitive opening and closing of unstable lung units. The research projects were conducted in collaboration with Sainte Musse Hospital - Toulon, France. Aude is a French specialist fellow in the Intensive Care Unit of Hospital Sainte Musse, Toulon, France. Her research interests include mechanical ventilation, non-invasive ventilation, lung disease, ARDS, and infectious diseases.
