Dr. Baldwin is board-certified pulmonary and critical care physician and clinical investigator with a Masters in Biostatistics and a K23 award from the National Institute on Aging. He attends on the critical care services at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. He is the PI of the Frailty and Outcomes in Critical Illness Survivors-I (FOCIS-I) study, a K23-funded prospective cohort study of 165 survivors of acute respiratory failure with detailed assessments of frailty, function, imaging, and banked serum samples, and repeated measurements of patient-reported outcomes after hospital discharge.
Dr. Baldwin’s research focuses on two related areas: (1) The clinical and translational investigation of frailty in survivors of acute respiratory failure. His work seeks to utilize the geriatric construct of frailty as a means to risk-stratify and identify critical illness survivors for targeted palliative, rehabilitative, and therapeutic interventions across the ICU to post-hospitalization care continuum. (2) Identifying and treating the palliative care needs of critical illness survivors with the goal of improving critical illness survivorship.
