    Michael W. Cripps, MD

    My application to become a member of the Surgical Infection Society arose from my research interests in resuscitation strategies for severely injured patients.  We all recognize that infectious complications are unfortunately common in our intensive care units.  My research is focused on outcomes associated with transfusions and massive transfusion protocols, and it has become clear to me that there is a significant correlation between these transfusions and post resuscitation infectious complications.  My hope is that by becoming a member of the SIS, I will have a closer interaction with those who have similar interests in post resuscitation outcomes in order to form effective collaborations to study and improve or prevent these infectious complications.
