I help to maintain and follow-up with the database of high-risk obstetric patients who present with unique anesthetic management concerns. In addition, I am currently involved in a number of research projects which seek to better guide anesthetic management of obstetric patients with significant coexisting diseases (two such areas of interest are intracranial lesions and maternal congenital heart disease). Some of my research also involves work done at the Center for Medical Simulation (Cambridge, Mass.), where we are specifically studying quality of communication among members of a high-functioning medical team during a simulated obstetric crisis, to see whether certain language patterns affect outcomes.I have a strong interest in clinical teaching and enhancing resident education as well. I compiled an obstetric anesthesia guidelines pocket card (with the help of many excellent staff here) for residents to use, and I am actively engaged in promoting formalized, structured teaching on the Obstetric Anesthesia rotation.
The MGH will participate in National Patient Safety Awareness week, March 8 through March 14.
