Research Summary

Dr. Karimi’s clinical research interests include the development of improved surgical techniques and blood conservation measures to improve outcomes in pediatric cardiac operations. He has been practicing blood conservation cardiac surgery in children for the last 8 years, having sophisticated heart-lung bypass support and equipment which allows for limited or no blood transfusion during cardiac surgery. He has demonstrated that patients requiring less or no blood transfusion have lower need for heart medications, shorter ventilator support, lower complication rate, and much shorter length of stay in the hospital.

Specialized Terms: improved surgical techniques, including lower need for heart medications, shorter ventilator support, lower complication rate, and much shorter length of stay in the hospital; blood conservation measures to improve outcomes in pediatric cardiac operations; blood conservation in cardiac surgery; limited or no-blood transfusion during cardiac surgery.
