Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Paradigm shift in cardiac arrest rhythm and resuscitation

What resuscitation strategies targeted toward pulseless electrical activity (PEA)/asystole would be successful in preventing cardiac arrest (CA)? Furthermore, what are animal models of PEA/asystole, what is responsible of this major shift in the underlying rhythm of CA, and what is the phenotype?

Neurocardiology – A Challenge for Prevention of CV Disease

There is a need to recognize and study the interdependencies between the brain/peripheral nervous system and the heart/vascular systems in health and disease to develop interventions to detect, treat, and prevent cardiovascular disease.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

How should platelet (PLT) transfusions be used to treat active bleeding?

Multiple randomized controlled trials have been performed to evaluate the use of prophylactic PLT transfusions in non-bleeding, thrombocytopenic hematology-oncology patients. However no high-quality data exist to guide PLT transfusions in actively bleeding patients inclduing pediatric and adult medical and surgical patients. After hematology-oncology patients, cardiac surgery patients are the next largest group of PLT... more »

Consequences of drug interactions leading to QTc prolongation

Better understand the consequences of drug interactions leading to QTc prolongation. About 1/3 of cardiac ICU patients develop QT prolongation and about 45% receive drugs that are possibly contributing to this problem. The full spectrum of contributors and causes, as well as the patient-centered and health-system-centered clinical outcomes, are not known.

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Coordination for Cardiac Care: Centalized database and joint sessions

Most senior citizens see a number of doctors. Mostly, coordination among the physicians is limited. Less than perfect to say the least.

Why all the physicians taking care of a patient don't maintain a common central database as well as meet with the patient together- say once a year.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Improving the Detection and Treatment of Cardiac Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis afflicts young adults, particularly African Americans and females, and often causes chronic disability or death. Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) was once considered to be a rare disease manifestation; however, with the development of improved diagnostic testing procedures, such as MRI and PET scans, CS is now known to afflict up to 40% of sarcoidosis patients and is recognized as a major cause of death. The current... more »

What causes variation in severity of skeletal muscle, lung, pulmonary and heart system symptoms in FSHD muscular dystrophy

Loss of diaphragm function and impaired respiration is a leading driver of morbidity and mortality in the adult muscular dystrophies such as facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and therefore requires additional study
