Lakshmi Raman, M.D., is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at UT Southwestern Medical Center. She specializes in pediatric critical care, with a particular focus on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), neuromonitoring, and neurocritical care. She serves as the Medical Director of ECMO at Children's Medical Center of Dallas.
Dr. Raman earned her medical degree at the University of Madras in India. She completed a residency in pediatrics at the SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University and a fellowship in pediatric critical care at the University of Minnesota. She also holds a Diploma in Child Health (DCH) from, and is a member of, the Royal College of Physicians in London.
Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in general pediatrics and pediatric critical care, she joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2008.
Dr. Raman is an active member in the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization, serving as their Chair of the Publications Committee, and serves on the board of trustees for the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO). She is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Society for Pediatric Research and serves on the editorial boards of the ASAIO Journal, Frontiers in Pediatrics, and the Journal of Clinical Medicine.
Dr. Raman’s research interests are in neurocritical care. Most recently her focus has been neurological injury while on ECMO, which is a cause of significant morbidity and mortality for patients on that form of life support. She has collaborated with biomedical engineers, biophysicists, and computer scientists to understand both disturbances in cerebral autoregulation in patients on ECMO and to work on prediction modeling to identify patients at risk for neurological injury.
She has delivered dozens of regional, national, and international lectures, contributed to numerous books, and published many academic articles, reviews, case reports, and clinical practice guidelines related to her areas of expertise.
