Introduction

I am a pediatrician with a subspecialty board certification in pediatric critical care. I have practiced pediatric critical care in a tertiary care children's hospital for the last thirty years and have qualified as an expert witness many times during that time period in several states. In the last ten years I have worked in a locums role as a Pediatric Intensivist in a wide variety of hospital venues (large and small) and in a variety of states. The primary PICU I have worked in for the last 24 years was in a pediatric hospital licensed for 180 pediatric patients. The PICU has approximately 1750 admissions/year including congenital heart surgery patients requiring open heart surgery as well as all manner of transplant patients. The PICU provides ECMO support of cardiac patients when necessary. Our patient populations also includes; pediatric trauma patients, renal transplant patients as well as a wide variety of medical and general pediatric surgical diseases. The Pediatric ED and PICU run a very busy transport service from the approximately 1 million person catchment area surrounding our facility.

I have spent time participating in surgical missions all over the world. My locums employment has exposed me to small community PICU's where I have performed the intensivist role as well as that of consultant to the ED and floors. It has also exposed me to other large academic centers.

I have also served The Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters as the President of the Medical Staff and in that role have participated in many quality improvement projects as well as many peer review situations.
