David Tingay

Murdoch Childrens Research Institute

Dr Tingay’s research interests are in the respiratory management of infants needing intensive care. His primary research involves exploring the physiological mechanisms occurring in the diseased lung and improving how clinicians treat newborn infants and children with severe respiratory failure using assisted mechanical ventilation. His research focuses on better understanding the physiological responses to mechanical ventilation, using complex feedback and imaging tools, to develop ventilation strategies that improve lung function and prevent long-term injury.
