  1. MGH Protocol: 2021P000119 (Samuel Smith, Co-PI with Jean Kwo, MD) Jan 1, 2021
    Use of a negative pressure hood as an additional protective measure in patients with COVID-19 undergoing aerosol generating procedures
    Role Description: Assess efficacy, technical considerations of implementation, and safety of a negative pressure hood during aerosolized generating procedures in an ICU setting- principally looking at CPAP and High-flow nasal cannula therapy for COVID patients.
    Role: Co-Principal Investigator
  2. (Samuel Smith, MD, MPH) Mar 1, 2020
    Use of Non-invasive Ventilation during Procedural Sedation
    Role Description: A considerably high percentage of patients exhibit airway obstruction during procedural sedation (MAC Anesthesia) and current solutions to reduce hypoxia risk are less than ideal. Nasal CPAP via new devices recently approved for use in OSA patients show promise for use in all patients with airway obstruction in moderate to deep sedation. Testing and adaptation of these new designs to the Anesthesia Provider environment is the aim of the this grant to improve patient safety during MAC cases.
    Role: Principal Investigator

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
