Research at MCW Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine Division

Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva

A pediatrician with nearly 30 years of experience, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva has pursued both medical and legal career paths. He currently serves in various directorial positions with the American Academy of Pediatrics, and as a professor of pediatrics as the Medical College of Wisconsin. Since 2008, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva has taught in the department of critical care and sleep medicine at the latter institution.

The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine division is made up of physicians who offer both inpatient and outpatient services to individuals requiring diagnosis and treatment for affiliated conditions such as asthma, pulmonary embolism, lung disease, and sleep disorders.

In addition to these more traditional services, the division also supports and undertakes relevant research and clinical trials, which give patients the opportunity to experience new, experimental treatments for their ailments. The college’s clinical trials focus on an equally wide range of conditions: cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and alcohol-induced liver decompensation, to name only a few. Patients are also given the opportunity to take part in pharmaceutical trials for some of these afflictions.

Much of the research carried out by the division faculty takes place in The Keck Functional Imaging Laboratory, a state-of-the-art lab that thrives thanks to the college’s partnership with Marquette University and the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center (where the lab is located). At the forefront of the lab’s impressive technology are micro-CT and micro-SPECT systems that allow researchers to study minuscule organ and tissue samples.
