With Dr. Baram's background in Emergency Medicine, his interest is acute care of the critically ill.

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.
