Michael Baram is a Jefferson Medical College graduate. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine and Emergency at Christiana Care Health system, an affiliated medical center that provides medical care to all of Delaware as well as surrounding states. He then completed Fellowship at Brown University in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Baram currently clinically works as an Intensivist at Jefferson Hospital, in center city Philadelphia. His major non-clinical responsibility is Director of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Training Program.
With Dr. Baram's background in Emergency Medicine, his interest is acute care of the critically ill. Research projects have included national studies involving sepsis and septic shock, such as Prowess â€“Shock and Euphrates. He has been involved in International projects such as the surviving sepsis campaign. In areas of sepsis and shock he has worked with various mediciations for sepsis, hemodynamic monitoring, and ultrasound training. Another area of interest is acute respiratory failure (ARDS) that requires advanced modes of ventilation beyond the recommendations of ARDSnet. Some of these modes include APRV, BiLevel, inhaled epoprostanol, and ECMO. In tight coordination with cardiac surgery, Jefferson has a robust ECMO program for ventilating and oxygenating the critically ill.
