Division Highlights - Critical Care

The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine delivers comprehensive, state-of-the-art care to critically ill children admitted to American Family Children’s Hospital.

Our scholarly endeavors include advocacy, medical education, clinical and basic science research, and global health.

2013 Highlights

  • Melissa Bates, PhD, a scientist in the lab of Marlowe Eldridge, MD, MSME, received the "Caroline tum Suden Professional Opportunity Award" by the American Physiological Society (APS). The award provides support for junior physiologists to attend and participate in the APS's annual Experimental Biology meeting.
  • Marlowe Eldridge, MD, received a three-year grant of $1.4 million from the U.S. Navy Experimental Diving Unit for his project, “Development of Decompression and Oxygen Pre-Breathe Schedules for Submarine Escape and Rescue using UW Sheep Model.”
  • Peter Ferrazzano, MD, received a five-year, $960,000 National Institutes of Health–National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NIH-NINDS) Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Career Development Award (K08) for his project “Age-Dependent Microglial Responses in Hypoxia-Ischemia.”
  • Lynne Sears, MS, RN, CPNP, received the UW Health Advance Practice Provider Excellence Award, which recognizes UW Health nurse practitioners and physician assistants who demonstrate outstanding clinical practice, teaching and leadership.
