Something is rewarding about working with your hands. Ever since high school, I have been woodworking and building furniture. To me, it’s both a mental and physical exercise that combines thoughtful preparation with skillful wielding of tools, all culminating in the finished project. In many ways, I relate this process to critical care medicine and adult cardiothoracic anesthesia. These patients require detailed planning, a variety of procedures using specialized devices, and the capacity to integrate high volumes of data. I enjoy adapting my practice to the unique complexities of each patient and dividing my care between the operating room and ICU. This enhances my perioperative decisions and allows me to make improvements as I identify best practices. Expanded interests of mine include quality improvement and medical education.
