As a critical care fellowship trained emergency physician practicing in both the emergency department (ED) and surgical intensive care unit (SICU), I am interested in patient care processes for ED patients requiring critical care services. As background to the study of these critically-ill patients, I have learned research methodologies by attaining a certificate in Program in Clinical Effectiveness at Harvard School of Public Health in 2007. Since 2007, I have worked on evaluating the incidence of central line associated blood stream infection from central catheters placed in our ED. Also, I am currently participating as site-investigator for the “Protocolized Care for Early Septic Shock” trial (www.processtrial.net) to evaluate the role quantitative resuscitation protocolized treatments in the management of severe sepsis and septic shock starting from the ED. So far, our site has been consistently a top enrolling site. Additionally, I have been recently awarded an intramural grant for a pilot proposal to evaluate the incidence of acute lung injury in two of thirty ProCESS study sites. At the hospital level, I represent the ED as a member of the writing committee for the “Therapeutic Hypothermia after Cardiac Arrest Guidelines of Care” and helped organized strategic alliances among different specialty providers. Recently, I am also participating as a co-investigator to develop and implement a national survey to evaluate ED best practices to reduce healthcare associated infections (HAI).
In the SICU, I became involved with the US Critical Illness and Injury Trial Group Lung Injury Prevention Study (USCIITG-LIPS) in 2009 and was the site-investigator for a multicenter cohort study in the derivation and validation of a prediction model in patients at risk for acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome. To further this research, I am participating on multiple ancillary studies using the original dataset as well as developing investigator initiated studies. Using the Lung Injury Prediction Score (LIPS), I was involved in a pilot studying the barriers to implementing a simple intervention (CLIP-Checklist for Lung Injury Prevention), which has the potential to reduce ALI development in at-risk hospitalized patients. Currently, I am serving as the site-PI for a phase 2 double-blinded, randomized controlled trial for Lung Injury Prevention with Aspirin (LIPS-A). In addition, I am also serving as council member to the USCIITG Prevention of Organ Failure Program (www.usciitg.org).
