Predoctoral researcher at the Biomedical Signal Processing and Interpretation Research Group

Application Deadline: 08/12/2021
Ref: PhD-BG

The Biomedical signal processing and interpretation group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) is looking for PhD candidate to conduct her/his predoctoral training on the analysis of the respiratory pattern associated with moderate and severe COVID-19 pneumonia. Most patients with COVID-19 pneumonia exhibit a characteristic breathing pattern with deep inspirations, late rise in respiratory rate (RR) and severe hypoxia without dyspnea. The inspiratory effort could cause a worsening of lung injury. The study proposes the following hypotheses: Temperature changes around the mouth and nose allow to detect changes in respiratory phase (inspiration-expiration) and therefore the RR in patients with oxygen therapy, and to obtain the inspiratory-expiratory ratio. Monitoring these relations and the respiratory system behaviour could allow the early detection of breathing patterns related to worsening of patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. The main objective is to determine biomarkers of the breathing pattern as dynamic predictors of poor evolution in these patients, before requiring mechanical ventilation. The final result will be the implementation a non-invasive system for this purpose.

The contract will be within the framework of the Project 85/C/2021 – A novel non-invasive respiratory pattern monitoring tool in patients with severe COVID.19 pneumonia, funded by Fundació La Marató de TV3.
