As a critical care psychiatrist with specialized knowledge in the neuroscience of intensive care unit (ICU) delirium with experience heavily embedded in the MICU, SICU, neuro ICU, and ECMO/CVICU units, my job is twofold. First, I implement evidence-based preventative strategies for patients to reduce the incidence of delirium and improve ventilator liberation times. Second, I curate advanced psychopharmacologic treatments that are both pharmacokinetically and pharmacodynamically-informed for patients experiencing delirium in the ICU with the intent of reducing the severity and length of their delirium. The goal is to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals, including physicians, nurses, and other specialists, to ensure comprehensive and integrated care for patients.
