ifference in the cost associated with treatment because we will be preventing costly complications."

Sole will be conducting her study over the next four years at intensive care units at Orlando Regional Medical Center, a part of Orlando Health. The grant will determine if the protocol she's developed aids in preventing complications of the ventilator.

The protocol calls for a standard way for nurses to remove excess fluids from the mouth and back of the throat. The team will also check patients for a special biomarker a protein that is routinely found in saliva, but should not be found in the lungs. If it is found in the lungs it would indicate that the patient has aspirated secretions from the mouth into the lungs.

"I'm hopeful we can make a difference," Sole said. "It's why I do what I do."

Aside from her duties at UCF, Sole is a clinical nurse specialist and clinical research scientist at Orlando Health. She is widely published and has been nationally recognized for her research with awards from the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.

Sole is a fellow in both the American Academy of Nursing and the American College of Critical Care Medicine. She earned her doctorate at the University of Texas-Austin, which named her a 2010 Distinguished Alumna. She is on the editorial boards for American Journal of Critical Care, Heart & Lung, and AACN Advanced Critical Care. She is also a past president of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses of Metro Orlando.

Co-investigators on the NIH study are: UCF assistant professor and nurse Steven Talbert who specializes in adult trauma nursing and Xin Yan, professor of statistics; Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, associate director of critical care medicine, Dr. Sam Venus, director for the Center for Nursing Research at Orlando Health Daleen Aragon Penoyer, PhD, RN, CCRP, FCCM, and Arnold Palmer Hospital
