Dr. Ashley Brown works closely with several different teams to assess the state of biomedical engineering as it relates to neonatal care. In one of her recent studies, Dr. Brown found that the current standard of using adult blood products in neonatal environments may cause post-surgical complications in patients. The results of this study suggest that postoperative bleeding, commonly seen after cardiac surgery in neonates, may be caused by the use of adult blood products that do not integrate well with neonatal blood clotting factors. These findings provide a huge opportunity for the advancement of neonatal care, and were subsequently published in the top journal Anesthesiology. Congratulations, Ashley!
