Applied Mathematics in Intensive Care Medicine

Our research straddles the border between mathematics and intensive care medicine.

We apply mathematical and computational methods to various pathophysiological topics related to intensive care medicine.

Our theoretical results are verified on data available from the literature, from publicly available databases, or data from collaborating experimental groups.

The theoretical approach searches for connections between individual findings and enables a deeper understanding of the studied issue.

We are also involved in the preparation of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in the field of intensive care medicine.
