Pediatric anesthesia; pediatric regional anesthesia
This is my fifteenth year on the faculty at DUMC. During these years, there was an initial focus of research work on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of anesthetic agents in children and now includes the sedation of mentally challenged children as well as pediatric regional anesthesia.
Industry funding is presently being provided for several multicenter studies and Duke has been an active participant. I am the PI for Duke on the investigation of the pk and pd of rocuronium in children that will be completed by mid-2007. Prior years I have been a PI or coPI for investigations in children at Duke for fentanyl, remifentanil, rapacuronium, rocuronium, and ondansetron.
This faculty member has no reported relationships with industry.
