Sleep Disorder Breathing
Dr. Milite’s research interests include sleep disordered breathing, specifically as it relates to heart disease and maximizing patient compliance with therapy for sleep disordered breathing. She has coauthored articles addressing respiratory emergency response, radiation-related bronchiolitis and breath-diffusing capacity in emphysema patients. She has also served as sub-investigator of an efficacy and safety study of drotrecogin alpha (activated) in adult patients with early stage severe sepsis, and was a sub-investigator for a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of prophylactic heparin in patients with severe sepsis and higher disease severity undergoing treatment with drotrecogin alpha (activated).
