Obstetric anesthesia; operating-room management; airway management
My principle area of interest is obstetric anesthesia. With in this context I am interested in effects of interventions on obstetric outcome, both maternal and neonatal. I also have an interest in the genetics of medicine as it related to obstetric outcomes, largely pre eclampsia, preterm labor and dystocia. Pain management is a secondary interest. I am currently investigating the ethnic and cultural influences on pain expression. I have an additional interest in genetic and molecular aspects of pain perception.
