John B. Downs

I am a Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine. I have been actively involved in teaching and research for more than 45 years. Currently, I am involved in the development of an anesthesia ventilator for dolphins, sea lions and large animals. I originally described IMV, APRV and AAV, a new mode of ventilation for anesthesia.
