Chief, Division of General, Vascular, and Transplant Anesthesia
Medical Director, Hyperbaric Center
Durham, NC 27710
General anesthesiology; undersea/hyperbaric medicine
Research interests include the study of cardiorespiratory function in humans exposed to environmental conditions ranging from 200 feet of seawater depth to high altitude, gas exchange during diving, the pathophysiology of high altitude pulmonary edema and the effect of anesthesia and postoperative analgesia on pulmonary function. Ongoing human studies include the use of fractals to study breathing patterns during environmental and perioperative stress, mechanisms of immersion pulmonary edema and monitoring of bowel oxygenation during hypovolemia.
