Jeffrey Guy, MD, MSc, MMHC, speaks with Clifford S. Deutschman, MD, FCCM, and Craig M. Coopersmith, MD, FCCM, who each served as lead authors in two Critical Care Medicine papers related to critical care research. Coopersmith’s paper, “A Comparison of Critical Care Research Funding and the Financial Burden of Critical Illness in the United States,” brings attention to the comparatively low percentage of federal research dollars dedicated to critical care. Months earlier, Dr. Deutschman, in collaboration with members of the Critical Care Societies Collaborative, published a critical care research agenda highlighting key issues and recommendations. Deutschman is the current SCCM president and professor of anesthesiology and critical care at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Coopersmith is the SCCM secretary and associate director of the Emory Center for Critical Care in Atlanta, Georgia.
