Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Pulmonary Embolism: My research focuses on finding means to predict who and a pulmonary embolism, and also who is likely to die and who is likely to live with a pulmonary embolism, so that we can use that information to more effectively and efficiently treat patients depending on their level of risk. In the end, it means tailoring therapy for patients with pulmonary embolism- those with high to intermediate risk of mortality and morbidity will likely in the future receive more intensive treatments than they do today, and those with low risk may someday be found to be safe going home after a short period of observation, no longer requiring hospitalization.

International Emergency Health Systems Development: Emergency Medicine is a relatively new speciality in the United States, and in much of the world does not exist as a physician specialty. Moreover, most countries do not have a well organized Emergency Medical Service (EMS) staffed with attendants trained on delivering emergency care in the field and on ambulances. My research here is on how to best organize out-of-hospital (EMS) systems as well as in hospital emergency departments, and in so doing design and implement emergency systems for entire nations. My greatest interest is in determining whether evidence exists to suggest whether private (not for profit and for profit) or public (government-run) systems are the most efficient and reliable for providing care to all people in need, rich and poor, urban and rural, insured and uninsured.
