My Clinical Focus

I work in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, taking care of the sickest children of all ages. I specialize in ventilator management, pediatric trauma care and severe infections. I also enjoy research and have written many articles about a variety of problems in critically ill children. My current research focus is on the effects that emotional stress caused by a critical illness can have on a patient and their family.
