Pediatric resuscitation issues,
Elizabeth A. Hunt, MD, MPH, “Betsy”, was recently named the first Director of the Johns Hopkins Simulation Center. Her thesis involves the use of simulation to assess the performance of pediatric residents during pediatric cardiopulmonary arrests. Her work analyzing in-hospital resuscitation systems through the use of simulation has resulted in receipt of the 2003 “Pearl M. Stetler Grant for Women Researchers”, the First Place Award for a Platform Presentation at the 2004 International Meeting on Medical Simulation, the 2004 Johns Hopkins “Helen Taussig Young Investigator Award” and the 2004 Johns Hopkins “Harriet Lane House Staff Appreciation Award.” She was invited to present her simulation and rapid response team research at the 2005 Third Annual Peter Safar Symposium at the University of Pittsburgh, the 2005 Toronto Critical Care Conference and the 2006 American Heart Association Scientific Symposium, amongst other venues. Dr. Hunt has been fortunate to have the opportunity to present, practice or teach about pediatric resuscitation issues throughout the world, including such diverse places such as England, Kosovo, Sweden, Uganda, Cuba, Portugal and Russia. She is currently an Attending Pediatric Intensivist in the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.
