Research Interests
blood conservation, critical care, echocardiography

Dr. Jerath research and teaching interests lie within the disciplines of critical care medicine and cardiac anesthesia.  Key areas of research include the use and safety of volatile agents for critical care sedation, development of gas scavenging techniques within the intensive care unit and tranexamic acid pharmacokinetic modeling for cardiac surgical patients using the technique of solid phase microextraction.  

She maintains a key education interest in perioperative echocardiography and has taught in many critical care transthoracic ultrasound courses, co-produced a 3D transesophageal handbook and created teaching modules for the University of Toronto’s Perioperative Interactive Education (PIE) website.      

Dr. Jerath is an active volunteer in overseas educational courses and engaged in physician training in Nepal and Ethiopia.
