In my research, I am primarily attempting to optimize care in the resuscitation area of the pediatric emergency department. Research areas I am specifically interested in and pursue include pediatric airway management, improvement of care for high acuity but low-frequency pediatric emergencies, video review and continuous vital signs for data collection during pediatric resuscitation.
My colleagues and I are looking to enhance systems of care in pediatric emergency settings when medical knowledge or clinical experience by itself is inadequate. I first became interested in this research due to my clinical training and skills and my motivation to provide the best care possible.
The group I work with, the Medical Resuscitation Committee, was created in 2007. It has become a nationally recognized leader in treating pediatric patients with high acuity and low-frequency conditions.
As a child, I was often a patient with great doctors. I enjoy Pediatric Emergency Medicine and the diversity of patients. This specialty provides me the opportunity to care for children and their families during some of their most challenging times.
During my career, my research has been published in respected journals such as the Annals of Emergency Medicine, Pediatric Emergency Care, American Journal of Emergency Medicine, and Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
