Research & Innovation in Critical Care

Akron General's Critical Care Center is one of the premier stroke and sepsis research sites in the United States and Europe. Our staff also performs complex investigational research involving pneumonia, hyperbaric medicine and prevention of complications of illness such as pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis.

The development and implementation of a multidisciplinary, planned approach to the intervention and management of stroke has lead to many investigative studies aimed at preventing and diminishing the devastating effects of America's number three killer and number one cause of disability in adults.

The Critical Care Center participates in a variety of other studies aimed at preventing the complication of complex illness such as pulmonary emboli, deep vein thrombosis and thrombophlebitis. Sepsis studies also assist in investigating methods to diminish the devastation associated with infectious disease. Device studies that involve the monitoring or oxygenation of Critical Care Center patients are yet another integral component of Critical Care Center research efforts.
