WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an anesthesiologist and pulmonary medicine specialist who specializes in high risk anesthesia, undersea and hyperbaric medicine. I see patients who wish to scuba dive or travel to high altitude, or who have experienced problems while swimming or diving. Diving, swimming and high altitude exposure can be simulated in the Duke Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

Research interests include the study of cardiorespiratory function in humans exposed to environmental conditions including diving and high altitude, gas exchange during diving, the pathophysiology of high altitude pulmonary edema, the effect of anesthesia and postoperative analgesia on pulmonary function and monitoring of tissue oxygenation. Ongoing human studies include the use of fractals to study breathing patterns during environmental and perioperative stress, mechanisms of immersion pulmonary edema and the effect of chemosensitivity on postoperative ventilation and gas exchange.
