The Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia group performs prospective and retrospective clinical studies in pediatric cardiac anesthesia.
We have conducted the following clinical trials in recent years:
Retrospective analysis of perioperative factors associated with early extubation
Prospective multicenter observational study on factors associated with early extubation after pediatric cardiac surgery
Evaluation study of pediatric cerebral oximetry sensor/unit (industry-sponsored study)
Our research has been published in academic journals and books.
