My critical care research interests include the training, implementation and quality assurance of point of care critical care ultrasound to differentiate shock states, predict preload responsiveness, and minimize unnecessary diagnostics and therapies. I am supervising the house staff for an ongoing clinical trial to assess the best methods of critical care ultrasound training within our fellowship program. Additionally, I am involved with our Anesthesiology/EM/Surgery Critical Care colleagues with point of care ultrasound training and research.
My pulmonary interests are directed towards interstitial lung diseases including sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), and connective tissue disease associated interstitial lung diseases (CTD-ILD). I have joined our interstitial lung disease group with the plan to expand our sarcoidosis clinical and academic endeavors locally and with other institutions nationally. I am also developing a multidisciplinary working group to consolidate our clinical care for sarcoidosis here at Washington University.
To combine the two interests, I am exploring additional applications for ultrasound in pulmonary medicine. Our ILD group is collaborating with the neuromuscular clinic to define lung ultrasound profiles in patients with myositis/anti-synthetase syndrome referred initially to neurology. Lung ultrasound may ultimately be used a screening method for underlying lung disease and stratify patients that require additional testing.
