Continuing Education, Extension, and Other Courses Taught

Within the first several years in academic critical care, I recognized the importance of the multidisciplinary focus to clinical care. This clinical focus was in stark contrast to the general structure of clinical education. I was struck through active participation in continuing education conferences in Respiratory Therapy, Nursing and Medical Societies, that each of these disciplines only attempted to educate “their own”. This was likely due to a historical approach and the increasingly specific accreditation demands. In 2003, I gave my first lecture at the American Society of Health System Pharmacists in New Orleans, LA on the impact of computerized ordering systems on ICU care. Then in 2006, I gave a lecture at a statewide Respiratory Therapy conference (CCRC). The experience of these presentations gave me the insight of “spreading the message” of the principals that guide care in the ICU to non-MD professionals could have a great impact on the ability to deliver evidence-based practices to our patients in the critical care unit. I recognized there was an opportunity to start a regional conference that sought to educate the entire team of healthcare professionals on the important principles of patient care that needed widely disseminated. This resulted in my leading the development of the MATCH Conference (https://ccme.osu.edu/ConferenceDetail.aspx?ID=667) The MATCH Conference is dedicated to the mission of providing “state-of-the-art education in a multidiscipline format (team presentations) in a multidiscipline environment. RTs, RN and MDs can all receive continuing education credit. This educational environment is unique within critical care and is consistent with the national goals for the delivery of ICU patient care. In its first year, more than 230 persons from six different areas of healthcare attended. We plan to continue this conference annually with a goal of >350 attendees in 2010. From these goals, I have learned that my interests in this area is extending the reach of medical education to all of the disciplines that we collaborate with and rely upon to execute our plan of care. My plan is to expand on this avenue of multidisciplinary education as a primary focus in future years.

Creative Works

Developing a clinical laboratory: a clinical database to better understand care in the ICU

With the advent of electronic information systems nationally and at OSU, there was significant hope that clinical data would become more readily available and thus better inform process improvement initiatives. However, soon after joining the faculty at OSU, it became apparent that these systems' underlying databases were not designed to support ready extraction of data for these purposes. They primarily served the needs of accurately maintaining a patient's medical record in perpetuity and support hospital financial reimbursement. As such, as I became involved in understanding ICU process of care, I became aware of the need to expedite the information transfer from these systems to improve care in our units.

To fill a gap in our current resources, a small group of individuals met to discuss ongoing data collection needs to better understand ICU process of care. I led the portion of this group generated the needs for general measures of ICU care. This included generating an accurate list of ICU patients, their need for mechanical ventilation, the specific ventilator practices used and their receipt of daily quality practices like, sedation stops, ventilator liberation trials and other components of the ventilator bundle.

After this list of variables was developed, I spent 6-8 months defining clinical documentation fields within the electronic medical record that represented these practices. Working with programmers within the Information Warehouse, we collaboratively designed the data and database workflows to populate the ICU Minimum Dataset. For the smaller list of variables not readily available electronically, I participated with our clinical trials office in the training of data collectors who acquired these important variables to complement and verify the automatic query results. I continue to supervise these data collectors to ensure the ongoing integrity of the database.

As a result of this work, we are able to better understand the impact of our various ICU initiatives. Since 2004, we can demonstrate that our ventilator practices are objectively better, severity adjusted mortality for sepsis patients are improved and our compliance with quality practices have improved. Additionally, more recent hospital initiatives involving antibiotic ordering has resulted in an improved ability to rapidly administer antibiotics to our patients with sepsis. This database has dramatically changed our understanding of ICU process and practices. It has allowed us to better plan and initiate process improvement initiatives.

A separate group, led by Jim O'Brien developed a similar database for sepsis patients within our ICU (termed the Sepsis Minimum Dataset). I collaborated with Dr O'Brien in its development and have had ongoing responsibility to maintain the database and ensure accuracy of the human and electronic processes that continue to populate the patient lists and data for the Db.

Postdoctoral / Researcher Advising

Within our division I have taken a smaller role in mentoring. As a faculty with a growing academic program, I have chosen to accept responsibility for mentoring and advising trainees in project-specific roles. This allows me to focus the appropriate time to these projects, while still achieving the responsibility of providing direction to the mentee. I plan to increase this responsibility in the next three years within my own division as my clinical studies progress. I have provided direction and oversight for three Fellows in our Pulmonary, Critical care Training Program and one group of senior trainees on research projects. Leanne Strack, Brent Riscili and Eric Adkins all spent at least one year under my mentorship. Shiva Rahmanian and Jason Huet teamed with Brent and Eric to develop and execute a clinical research performance improvement project. Leanne Strack initially began her research years (yr 2 and 3) in the basic science laboratory of Mark Wewers. When this did not fit her interests she sought out projects within the clinical environment. I agreed to mentor her on a time-limited project analyzing risk-factors for ICU-acquired weakness in our Medical ICU patient population. This collaboration resulted in two products. The first was an abstract analyzing the clinical factors associated with ICUAW in our prior cohort study and the second was the generation of a newer second cohort study that look at the association between biomarkers of angiogenesis and muscle strength at recovery from mechanical ventilation. Eric Adkins became my advisee in his second year when he identified a research project in an area crossing multiple disciplines. His initial interest was in induced hypothermia in sudden cardiac death. He had done appropriate background work identifying that this was an area for potential improvement at OSUMC and in the general community. Michael Sayre was identified as a primary mentor and I as a co-Mentor. We developed and began a retrospective analysis of the OSU experience. During this studies progress, Dr Sayre and I recognized several limitations to this study and advised Dr Adkins to alter his focus. We had originally planned to record the cerebral performance category for all hospitalized patients surviving to hospital discharge despite experiencing sudden cardiac death during their hospitalization. This data was expected to be readily available within the medical record by chart review; however, we quickly identified that there was significant missing data. As a result we advised Dr Adkins to expand his work in a secondary area of clinical interest. Dr Adkins had a significant interest in training ICU physicians in ultrasound proficiency. With this skill set we identified a clinical area that was ripe for exploration in critically ill patients. The IVC collapsibility index IVCCI) as measured by bedside ultrasound is an indicator of intravascular fluid state and could have important implications for clinical decision making. As a result we have performed a prospective cohort study whose results we are currently analyzing. This study was designed to determine the influence of mean airway pressures on IVC collapsibility. This data is being analyzed currently but is an ongoing project that Dr Adkins is continuing with in his faculty years. Dr Brent Riscili approached me to mentor him in his masters program beginning in early 2009. He also was transitioning away from initial work in the basic science area in critical care. He decided to refocus his career into disaster planning. The serendipitous occurrence of the 2009 influenza pandemic crystallized Dr Riscili's interests. In addition to his course work he wrote his thesis on adapting general principles of emergency preparedness and disaster response to pandemic influenza. His work directly contributed to the protocols that were devised for disaster preparedness for an infectious respiratory illness requiring significant ICU services. In addition to the specific projects with Eric Adkins and Brent Riscili outlined above I served as mentor to a year-long senior Fellow Research project. Shiva Rahmanian and Jason Huet joined Brent and Eric to form a team that chose to investigate ways to reduce the occurrence of ICU readmission. These events are often preventable if proper precautions are made during all transitions of care for these patients. However, despite increased attention to this through our training programs, this adverse patient event occurs in approximately 3% of our ICU discharges. Readmission to the ICU is clearly associated with increased morbidity and mortality. This group performed a retrospective study of a previously published simple scoring tool that identified patients at risk for ICU readmission. They found that this tool predicted ICU readmission risk in our institution, but in addition, its discrimination was improved with the addition of some simple clinical variables. This work has been developed into a manuscript that will be submitted fall 2010.

Published Works

The topics covered in a global overview of my work spans a direct line from my initial interests in the mechanisms of acute lung injury to my current interest in non-pulmonary organ failure in patients with sepsis. As an early fellow in critical care medicine, I was struck with the unique requirements of the ICU environment. As we were transitioning our ordering system from paper to a computer interface, I took the opportunity to propose, execute and publish my observations of the critical elements that led to successful implementation of these systems in the ICU. After these investigation performed, I left this area to enter into the laboratory to understand the basic mechanisms of acute lung injury (ALI), the most common cause of respiratory failure in the medical ICU. This research focused on TGF-beta regulation and while it took a while for this line of work to mature, it formed the nidus of research that led to my current funding for acute lung injury in severe sepsis. (K23 RR019544) As this research matured, I continued to pursue the clinical problems that influenced the development of ALI in ICU patients. The problem of glucose dysregulation was becoming more widely recognized. Significant research pointed to the fact that glucose dysregulation could lead to increased cellular stress and perhaps a greater propensity for ALI. As a result, I designed a pilot study to determine the role of hyperglycemia in patients at high-risk for severe sepsis. This retrospective analysis led to the publication of a report outlining the risk hyperglycemia appears to pose to patients with acute myeloid leukemia. This disease cohort was selected because of their propensity to develop severe sepsis and ALI (OR 30+ compared to non-leukemia). This report was published in 2007 and led to the main clinical study supported by my K23 research award. This study is now closed to enrollment and we are analyzing data. In the most recent phase of my research career, my interest was piqued by the connection between glucose dysregulation and the problem of critical illness polyneuropathy (also termed ICU-acquired weakness). This recently described clinical entity was known to occur more frequently than once suspected and to be associated with significant clinical morbidity. As a result, in 2005 we initiated a study across five academic medical centers that advanced our understanding of the impact of this disorder and was published in 2008. This nexus of weakness and glucose dysregulation now dominates my research program. This opened up opportunities to do multi-institutional interdisciplinary research. [eProtocol-Insulin LDS Hospital UT, voluntary extension of NIH Roadmap Contract “Reengineering Clinical Research in Critical Care.” (NO1-HC 45210, HHSN 268200425210C)] Additionally, I have been recently appointed the Chair of an International Consensus Conference to delineate definitions and standard assessments for this disorder of ICU-acquired weakness. This conferences work is progressing nicely and will be completed in the Fall of 2011.
