Michael R. Pinsky, MD Dr hc

Professor and Vice Chair for Academic Affairs
Director, Cardiopulmonary Research Laboratory
Director, NRSA Research Training Program

Dr. Pinsky's work spans various aspects of critical care medicine but centers on cardiopulmonary physiology, hemodynamic monitoring sepsis and acute organ dysfunction. Over the past 30 years  I have organized multidisciplinary teams of investigators to study novel approaches to the diagnosis of left and right ventricular dysfunction, circulatory shock, complexity modeling of critical illness and the use of complex modeling feedback to diagnose and treat critical illness in humans.

Dr. Pinsky's laboratory integrates the work of computation biology, health service research and minimally invasive hemodynamic monitoring to understand the basic mechanism of cardiovascular collapse and response to therapies in all forms of circulatory shock.

Other Research Interests

 - Use of integrated monitoring systems to improve recognition of instability

 - Identification of hepatic insufficiency following OLTx using non-invasive monitoring
