Critical Care Ultrasound Research

The critical care ultrasound research and interest group is composed of members from emergency medicine, medical ICU (pulmonology), cardiac ICU (anesthesia intensivists), surgical ICU (trauma surgeons, anesthesia intensivists), and neurological ICU (anesthesia intensivists).  The goal is to provide a forum for creating new research ideas, discuss critical care ultrasound opportunities within the institution, and network with other intensivists throughout the institution.  Meetings will occur the first Tuesday of each month from 2-3pm in South Tower 4016 (listed below and on curriculum schedule).

Particular topics we are currently investigating include but not limited to:

Management of septic shock, muscle evaluation for nutrition, optic nerve sheath diameter in trauma/stroke/encephalopathy, weaning from mechanical ventilation, volume status in head injured patients, pleural effusion, etc.
