What are the most effective strategies for reducing alarm fatigue and optimizing cardiorespiratory monitor alarm management?

Hospital cardiorespiratory monitors have great potential to save lives, but are hampered by high false alarm rates that contribute to alarm fatigue. While the long term solution is developing new medical devices that will do this better, few hospitals will benefit from new device innovations in the next decade. In order to better identify early signs of cardiorespiratory deterioration in the hospital at an early stage ...more »

Achieving Excellence in Health and Science Communication

At least two thirds of US adults use the internet to access health information. The accuracy and quality of health and science information found on news media websites, corporate websites of the healthcare industry, blogs of healthcare providers and social media networks varies widely. Nevertheless, this information can have a profound influence on the healthcare-related decision-making of patients. The anti-vaccination ...more »

Basic and Clinical Multi-disciplinary Partnerships to Understand Lung Disease

Basic scientists and clinicians have different training and bring different perspectives to lung disease research. Additionally, mechanisms that facilitate interactions of scientists from different fields may improve communication and facilitate novel ideas for lung disease research. I would like to see a funding mechanism that encouraged such partnerships in addressing fundamental disease questions and/or treatments. ...more »

Heart Failure Therapies

We need much more support for critical basic research to understand and develop transformative therapies for this enormous health care burden. This is not simply a question of epidemiology and large multicenter population data bases. We really need hard core science. It is impossible to know where the next breakthrough will come, and setting aside funds for hot button things - stem cells, or iPS, or gene editing per ...more »
