Assistant Professor, Department of Critical Care Medicine
Dr. Gomez's research interest has been directed towards the assessment and understanding of tissue perfusion during shock states. He has studied the metabolic and hemodynamic responses to hemorrhagic shock in animal models, minimally invasive and non invasive monitors of perfusion in trauma, sepsis, cardiac surgery and shock, and outcome prediction tools in critically ill patients using acid base models. Most recently, he has centered his research interest in the study of mitochondrial respiration during sepsis and its relationship to global measurements of perfusion. He is supported by a K08 from the NIH and a grant from the Vascular Medicine Institute, and previously by a K12.
