3rd Year Fellow
Medical School: Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar
Residency: Women's and Children's Hospital, University at Buffalo
Research Interests:

One of the interests I have is in pediatric delirium in the ICU and the impact it has on some of our outcomes. As a result, I am working on a retrospective case-controlled study on the influence of delirium on unplanned extubations in the PICU. Previously, our unit evaluated unit-specific and process-related factors in depth, but I am looking at patient-related factors, with the focus on delirium.

Research Interests:

I am interested in the use of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) in the ICU and its impact on outcomes among PICU patients with acute respiratory failure. My project specifically looks at patients with sepsis and/or pneumonia who require NIPPV. Outcomes we are interested in include duration of NIPPV use, time to intubation (if applicable), days on invasive mechanical ventilation (if applicable), PICU length of stay, and hospital length of stay.
