My program of research is focused on increasing the accuracy and utilization of electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring in hospitalized adults. My work in ECG monitoring is focused on identifying myocardial ischemia among hospitalized patients with acute coronary syndrome (i.e., heart attack, unstable angina), arrhythmia's and exploring alarm fatigue, a patient safety hazard associated with high numbers of false ECG alarms. Following my research training at UCSF (Masters 1996; PhD 2001), I started my independent research career in 2004, in the school of Nursing at the University of Nevada, Reno. I was awarded an R21 from NINR in 2010, and was a Co-Investigator for the NHLBI sponsored R01 REMOTE-HF Study. I have been involved with several other NIH funded studies. In 2015, I was given the opportunity to return to UCSF as an Assistant Professor and assume the directorship of the ECG Monitoring Research Lab, the lab I trained in, following the retirement of my mentor Barbara J. Drew, RN, PhD, FAAN. The ECG Monitoring Research Lab is recognized as a leader in the science of electrocardiology.
