The course is hosted by the (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - Respiratory load-induced cardiorespiratory failure : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series More Information
The Seminar: Respiratory loads have long been used to stress the respiratory muscles. When these loads cause failure, however, this has been attributed to inadequate pressure generation by the respiratory muscles, especially the diaphragm. Recently, we discovered that in a rat model of load-induced (...)
