Dr. Arthur Slutsky is a critical care physician whose research, teaching and patient care has touched broad sectors of the health care community. His research interests span the fields of acute respiratory failure, non-conventional ventilation, classic respiratory mechanics, asthma pathophysiology, lung transplantation, myocardial preservation during cardiac surgery, and recently, the primary role mechanical ventilation plays in the development of subsequent lung injury and multiple organ failure. In this presentation, Dr. Slutsky will present the early beginnings of respiratory care and how mechanical ventilation has grown from the “early days” of the iron lung and polio epidemic, the “birth of the ICU” and how technology has grown from the 1800s to today.
