Dr. Fuller continues to work on projects with the over-arching goal of investigating highly morbid and mortal conditions that have traditionally been studied outside of the ED population. This includes refining the role of arterial carbon dioxide as an outcome predictor in mechanically ventilated patients, investigating pulmonary mechanics as predictors of mortality and ARDS, early sedation management and its influence on outcome, and the role of initial fluid management.
Dr. Fuller has also been fortunate enough to collaborate with several other investigators and co-author several publications on various topics such as rural sepsis care, temperature management in sepsis, immune function in sepsis, and ultrasound to confirm central venous catheter placement.
Clinical and academic involvement inside and outside of the institution also drives research hypotheses and productivity. Dr. Fuller is a member of the Shock Society and the Society for Critical Care Medicine. He also serves on the Editorial Board for SHOCK (http://journals.lww.com/shockjournal/pages/default.aspx) and is an abstract reviewer for the Society of Critical Care Medicine annual congress (http://www.sccm.org/Education-Center/Annual-Congress/Pages/default.aspx). He has also served as a peer reviewer for the leading critical care and emergency medicine journals, including Critical Care Medicine, SHOCK, Journal of Critical Care, Annals of Emergency Medicine, Academic Emergency Medicine, and Critical Care.
