    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research group has a long and successful history of using the intensive care units as laboratories in which clinical trials are conducted studying methods to improve outcomes for patients suffering respiratory system and other organ failures. We study long-term outcomes from critical illness such as the course of ICU-acquired weakness, a clinical process akin to frailty in geriatric populations but progressing precociously in the wake of many acute illnesses. The large clinical databases created for these studies can be correlated to blood samples collected over more than eight years in the same populations to identify host risk factors for or pathways leading to neuromuscular injury utilizing tools of genomic analysis.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
