What are you researching?

Research nurses, what studies are you involved in?
I'll start. My first-ever study got ethics approval last week! It looks at cardio adverse events following ED discharge. We are also doing studies on pneumonia, asthma, syncope, and concussion.
I really like working in ED research. It's so gratifying to be involved in research designed to understand why these patients present to ED, and how we can prevent repeat visits.
How about you? (I understand that some of you are likely shrouded in secrecy, but maybe you can share in general terms?)
- 1Apr 24, '13 by kloneI work in perinatal research. Some of our studies:
Placental involvement in pre-eclampsia
Neurological development of infants of women who had prolonged premature rupture of membranes
Delayed cord clamping
The use of antenatal steroids in women with late preterm infants
The use of inhaled nitric oxide to prevent pulmonary hypertension in extreme premature infants
The genetics of chronic lung disease in premature infants
Diet and activity in women during pregnancy and how it affects fetal and infant growth
There are about a dozen more, but the above are some of them. I love my job!
