Description of Research Expertise:
Jose Pascual is a clinical surgeon specialized in trauma and critical care who has a special interest in shock and head injury. His research interests are shared in basic science research where he evaluates, in vivo, through intravital microscopy the real time microcirculation of pia on live rodent brains. He seeks to learn how a variety of insults including head injury and shock affect the microcirculation and how different management strategies influence these changes. This basic science work is translated into several clinical projects both retrospective and prospective evaluating the effects of different osmotherapeutic agents in traumatic brain injured patients as well as the immunemodulating effects of different resuscitation fluids in different forms of shock.
