With expertise in respiratory and critical care medicine, Andres Herrera-Camino, MD, strives to provide high-quality, comprehensive care for patients with complex needs. His clinical and research interests focus on understanding long-term effects that critical illnesses have on the physical, mental and cognitive domains among ICU survivors. He is particularly interested in characterizing long-term pulmonary sequelae that affect children with severe acute respiratory failure and in implementing programs to mitigate some of these morbidities. The comprehensive and collaborative approach to patient care in the ICU, as well as the in-depth knowledge and understanding of human physiology and my interest in continuity of care and patient outcomes after hospital discharge, drew me to these fields," says Dr. Herrera-Camino, who received his dual training in pediatric critical care and pulmonary medicine at Washington University in St. Louis.Dr. Herrera-Camino completed his undergraduate training in Lima, Peru and his pediatric residency at Indiana University/Riley Hospital for Children, where he was selected as a scholar in the Morris Green Physician Scientist Development Program.
