      Owens, Robert Llewellyn; Harris, Robert Scott; Malhotra, Atul (BioMed Central, 2009)
      Intra-abdominal hypertension is increasingly recognized to be both prevalent and clinically important in medical and surgical intensive care units. Intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) can impact organ function throughout the ...
    • Modeling \(^{18}F-FDG\) Kinetics during Acute Lung Injury: Experimental Data and Estimation Errors 

      Dittrich, A. Susanne; Winkler, Tilo; Wellman, Tyler James; de Prost, Nicolas; Musch, Guido; Harris, Robert Scott; Vidal Melo, Marcos Francisco (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Background: There is increasing interest in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]flouro-D-glucose (\(^{18}F-FDG\)) to evaluate pulmonary inflammation during acute lung injury (ALI). We assessed the effect ...
    • Ventilation Defect Formation in Healthy and Asthma Subjects Is Determined by Lung Inflation 

      Harris, Robert Scott; Fujii-Rios, Hanae; Winkler, Tilo; Musch, Guido; Vidal Melo, Marcos Francisco; Venegas, Jose Gabriel (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Background: Imaging studies have demonstrated that ventilation during bronchoconstriction in subjects with asthma is patchy with large ventilation defective areas (Vdefs). Based on a theoretical model, we postulated that ...
