Division is actively involved in clinical and basic sciences research in various aspects of pediatric intensive care

Research related to circulatory failure: The division has been involved in studies on status of endocrine system in children with septic shock. This included studies on adrenal, thyroid function and vasopressin levels in children with septic shock. In addition, we evaluated role of a biomarker-troponin in children with septic shock.

We have validated use of various severity of illness scoring systems.

We have studied the prevalence of various health care associated infections in critically ill children. Role of oral mucosal decontamination in preventing ventilator associated pneumonia has been studied.  We have studied the glucose homeostasis in critically ill children, prevalence of hypophosphatemia in critically ill children.

We are currently evaluating various hemotologic abnormalities in critically ill children, determining the prevalence of catheter related venous thrombosis, and incidence of hypertension in critically ill children.
