Barlow Respiratory Research Center
Barlow Respiratory Research Center (BRRC) is recognized as the leader in published outcomes research on weaning patients from prolonged mechanical ventilation in the post-ICU setting of long-term acute care.
A dedicated Research Center at a respiratory hospital is exceptionally rare. Our outcomes and health services research focuses on studying chronically critically ill patient populations.
We share our research results with healthcare professional peers to elevate the standard of care for every patient, everywhere.
Barlow Respiratory Hospital and Barlow Respiratory Research Center were the first to publish a protocol specifically for weaning patients from prolonged mechanical ventilation.
Barlow TIPS© Protocol
Barlow’s Therapist-Implemented Patient Specific TIPS© Protocol was developed by Barlow pulmonologists based on evidence-based medicine. Revised in 2014, the protocol continues to be referenced by health care professionals and widely adopted by other hospitals.
Barlow Respiratory Research Center helps shape health care decisions for patients with ventilator dependency, respiratory failure, and other related diseases in the medically complex patient.
We led the Ventilation Outcomes Study, the first and only multicenter study of weaning outcomes at long-term acute care hospitals. Barlow Respiratory Research Center served as the Primary Research Site and Data Coordinating Center for the 23-hospital study. Results of the project were published as two papers in the peer-reviewed journal CHEST in 2007.
Our research results are made possible by our generous donors.
Make an investment in the future of respiratory care today.
