Kerri Margret Wahl
Professor of Anesthesiology
Endocrine changes and hemodynamic stability after brain death, perioperative management of the multiorgan donor and DCD continue as my main areas of expertise and authorship for 15 years. Given the shortage of cadaveric donors, living related donation of the kidney and right lobe of the liver has become a viable option for adult patients, and as such, requires meticulous care of a healthy donor patient to limit the perioperative risk of morbidity and mortality. I have published guidelines for the perioperative care of the transplant patient for surgery and/or pregnancy and delivery. My clinical research interests include anesthesia for liver transplantation (pain management, perioperative outcomes, pharmacokinetic/dynamic studies, strategies to reduce transfusion requirements, low CVP anesthesia and liver surgery), developing a perioperative outcomes anesthesia database, clinical efficacy of synthetic colloid solutions for large volume infusion and living-related kidney transplantation, and phase I studies in human volunteers in the Human Pharmacology Laboratory (HPL).
