Dr. Lakshmi Raman’s interest is in brain injury and the care of ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) patients. She has concentrated her lab interest in the effect of chronic hypoxia on the brain to her clinical expertise in critical care medicine.
As the Medical Director of the ECMO program and the ICU liaison for trauma patients at Children’s Health, she has focused her interest in the development of the program and advancing the field through research in these areas. She has been involved in doing some prospective studies in patients on ECMO and a study comparing different concentrations of hypertonic saline in the management of intracranial hypertension in traumatic brain injury. She is also an active member in the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization helping with their educational goals.
