Pediatric Resuscitation

Randall Burd, MD, PhD, is the Chief of the Division of Trauma and Burn Surgery and an Associate Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics whose main research interest is in improving teamwork during trauma resuscitation and improving pre-hospital pediatric trauma triage. He leads our multidisciplinary research team studying errors and teamwork in trauma resuscitation, including collaborators in emergency medicine and surgery, human factors, informatics, computer science, and biomedical engineering. Our research in trauma resuscitation is now funded by an R01 from the National Institutes of Health to develop statistical approaches for real-time prediction of outcome after pediatric injury and an R21 focused on developing a display to improve communication during pediatric trauma resuscitation.
