Research interests for Patients:
I am interested in improving the rapid diagnosis and treatment of infection in children, in a life-threatening condition called sepsis. Working with teams at Children's Hospital Colorado, we have made great strides in improving early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis here. I also conduct research in Colorado and nationally to try to improve our knowledge of the best ways to diagnose and treat sepsis in children. Finally, I am involved in national and international committees developing guidelines and recommendations for the best ways for hospitals to identify and treat sepsis.
