The research groups and the Main lines of research developed in the Service are the following:

Anesthetic gases:
Gases used in anesthesia: halogenated agents, Xenon and Oxygen (hyperoxia). 
Mode of administration of anesthetic agents (for anesthesia in the operating room and for sedation in critical care) where new disposable devices alternative to vaporizers (AnaConDa) are investigated.

REDOX:
Effects of anesthetics on ischemia reperfusion: oxidative stress and organ protection.
Study of the expression of Aquaporins 1 and 5 in an experimental model of acute lung injury by mechanical ventilation in rats.

Respiratory:
Ventilatory management of patients: includes mechanical ventilation (pulmonary protection and adjuvant treatment) special ventilatory modes (weaning, PAV +, NAVA) drugs with immunomodulatory effects, etc. 
Non-invasive ventilation Study of new interfaces and application of non-invasive ventilation in the postoperative period.

Critical care:
Development of less invasive hemodynamic monitoring, and its application in the field of perioperative patients admitted to critical care units.
Hemostasis: 
Study of devices and drugs to quantify or intervene in hemostasis: in prevention of thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications in the perioperative period.

Neurocritics:
Development of neurological monitoring and new therapies in neurocritical patients.

Pain: 
Development of new strategies and drugs for the treatment of pain.
