The research group is comprised of staff anesthesiologists, cardiovascular intensivists and academic physicians whose interests cover many disciplines of anesthesia, critical care, pain and perioperative medicine. The group has developed a high level of expertise in many research methodologies including clinical trials, observational studies, retrospective analyses, systematic reviews, population based studies and decision analyses.
Dr. Jerath's primary research focus lies in critical care medicine and cardiac surgery. She has pursued research in the use of volatile anesthetic agents for critical care patients that includes conducting clinical trials and assessing safety and development of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) gas scavenging system. She has also carried out research in tranexamic acid pharmacokinetic modelling for cardiac surgical patients. This work has involved the validation of newer techniques to measure drug concentration called solid phase microextraction. Finally, she has an interest in perioperative 2D and 3D transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography. She has been involved in the development of online education tools that have been shown to accelerate the education of echo trainees and has also published echocardiography education papers and texts.
