Adit Ginde, MD, already had a hunch that most hospitalized trauma patients were receiving too much oxygen, but when the U.S Department of Defense came to the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus looking for solutions to problems around battlefield oxygen, he saw the chance to put his theory to the test.
Humans can expect more widespread sickness, injuries and disease from a changing climate. Healthcare is accordingly coalescing around the idea that we need to upgrade our medical training programs to address climate — and even train “climate doctors.” Dr. Jay Lemery discusses patient-centered policies to advocate for climate action.
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus has been designated an Age-Friendly University for its leadership in research, education and care for older adults. The recognition is part of an international effort endorsed by the Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE) to create more programs, policies and opportunities for an aging population.
Dr. Ginde played a major role in the design and oversight of a large trial testing whether IV Remdesivir (an inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 that is used in hospitalized patients) might prevent subsequent hospitalization for high-risk patients with COVID-19.
In 2018, a single-center randomized trial suggested that clinicians should routinely change their approach to airway management to use a bougie (long, thin, introducer aid) when intubating. Led by Drs. Trent and Ginde, and by Michelle Howell, RN, CU was one of the most robust contributors of data.
