Research Interests

Dr. Jacono is board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care Medicine, and he currently

serves as the Medical Director of the Respiratory Therapy Department and Co-chair of the CPR Committee at the

Cleveland VA Medical Center. In addition to his clinical practice in the medical intensive care unit and the pulmonary

outpatient clinic, Dr. Jacono’s research interests are focused on the neural control of breathing in acute lung injury

(ALI), acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and mechanical ventilation. The overall goal of his laboratory is to

develop and test a cohesive set of computational approaches to quantify biologically determined breathing pattern

variability to provide predicative insight into prognosis and reversible pathophysiology leading to recovery, survival

and rehabilitation; ultimately, targeting measures of pattern variability as an “additional vital sign” providing

diagnostic and predictive information to clinicians. Dr. Jacono received an Advanced Career Development Award from

the VA Research Service, and his research activities have also been supported by the American Heart Association

and the NIH.
