Research

Dr. Brenner's focus is on providing excellent care to patients with pulmonary disease in the office and hospital setting. He is trained in advanced procedures to diagnose malignant and non-malignant chest conditions and to treat specific complications of advanced thoracic cancers. His research interest is in the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as a treatment for severe respiratory failure and the new application of this technology to patients with COPD.

Research Interests

  • ECMO for ARDS
  • Long-term outcomes after ECMO for ARDS
  • Extracorporeal CO2 removal for COPD exacerbation
