Research on cardiovascular variability in sepsis funded

I am delighted to report that our grant application to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences has been funded. This research studies hidden rhythms in heart rate and blood pressure among patients with severe infection. We are hoping to identify rhythms that give us information about prognosis and possible therapies for this life-threatening syndrome.
