Relationship of Selenium Status to Sepsis in extremely premature infants 


Horacio Falciglia, MD, serves as the director of the Vermont Oxford Database, where he finds his work both challenging and interesting. This work allows the division to compare local (Cincinnati) neonatal outcomes, morbidities, and mortality in premature infants under 1500 grams with 600 other NICUs in the US and abroad. Dr. Falciglia also enjoys sharing years of clinical experience with new graduates and students as he teaches medical students and residents at the bedside. Dr. Falciglia's past research on meconium aspiration has been exciting and rewarding, and his research is leading to the understanding of the pathophysiology of this complex disease. The incidence of this disease has been drastically reduced through research and improved perinatal care.
