Advancing critical care through clinical research
Critical Care Research Center conducts integrated clinical research that spans the entire continuum of patient care. We are unique in our ability to implement research activities from the time an ambulance arrives at a patient’s side through discharge from the hospital and beyond. Our physician-led research group conducts federal, industry and investigator-initiated trials at Regions Hospital and Methodist Hospital. Our focus is on improving patient outcomes and advancing the science around critical care. We have been an integral part of pandemic response. We rapidly engaged in high-impact studies of drugs and treatments for COVID-19—providing patients and clinicians with much-needed options.
We oversee clinical research in Level 1 Adult and Pediatric Trauma Centers as well as specialty areas. They include emergency medical services and emergency medicine department; surgical intensive care unit and medical intensive care unit; Burn and Wound Care Center; hospital medicine department and general surgery.
