    Research Summary

    Dr. Dorman’s ICU-oriented research focuses on informatics applications in the ICU as it relates to remote monitoring of critically ill patients, leadership strategies in the ICU and the creation of a culture of safety. His other areas of interest include the stress response to surgery, aminoglycoside antibiotics, fungal infections and renal failure.

    Dr. Dorman is interested in applying pharmacokinetic models to drug administration in critically ill patients with the ultimate desire to electronically monitor drug administration and offer clinicians decision support information. One of his current projects addresses the ethical issue of triage in the ICU and its implications for disaster preparedness.
