Board Certifications

Pulmonary Disease; Internal Medicine; Critical Care Medicine

I am an intensive care specialist with board certifications in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, and critical care medicine. As an intensivist I treat life-threatening conditions such as respiratory failure, heart failure, circulatory shock, kidney failure, and acute bleeding. In the ICU, our primary goal is to provide supportive measures — including but not limited to actual life support — while the body attempts to recover from a life-threatening illness. Our secondary goal is to support patients’ comfort and maintain awareness so that they may participate in physical therapy and other activities and not become deconditioned during their illness. Our third goal is to support patients’ families during this time of crisis.

I routinely use ultrasound at the bedside to expedite diagnoses and assist in invasive procedures. In my role as an educator of residents, fellows, and nurse practitioners, I run workshops in the use of ultrasound in the ICU.

My areas of scientific interest are the role of cytokines in sepsis and in inflammatory states caused by immunotherapy as well as acute heart failure in cancer patients.
