I believe in treating every patient with the compassionate, quality care that I would want for my own family. As critical care physicians, we are entrusted to take care of children and families during what is often the worst time of their lives. I am inspired daily to live up to that trust and provide the absolute best evidence-based, comprehensive care possible.
I am interested in exploring and expanding the integration of technology into medicine. This has inspired my interest in non-invasive and invasive ventilatory support and ECMO. I also am interested in the prevention and management of delirium and in increasing mobility in PICU patients to improve outcomes.
My research aims to embrace the inevitable merge of technology into our everyday lives. My ultimate goal is to use both current and emerging technologies to improve patient outcomes and the patient and provider experiences. Most recently, I have been investigating utilization of partially wireless pulse oximetry to reduce episodes of loss of signal integrity and false alarms secondary to motion artifact in pediatric subjects.
