 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Walkey investigates epidemiology and clinical outcomes of complications that occur in patients who are critically ill. Using clinical and administrative data, Dr. Walkey focuses on interations between organ systems during critical illness and seeks to find effective health care provider practice patterns that are associated with better patient outcomes. His research interests include sepsis, acute lung injury, and atrial fibrillation that occurs during critical illness.
