Biography

Dr. Alpan is a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at New York Medical College. He is also an attending physician at the Regional Neonatal Center at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. His academic interests lie in cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology of the newborn. He is embarking on projects which utilize a non-invasive method of measuring limb blood flow in neonates. The method is impedance plethysmography and has not been widely employed in neonates. Because of their small size, there is very little data on blood flow in premature newborns and the hope is that these measurements, taken under various conditions, will provide data that will be important in clinical management. Thus, as an example, we would measure how different modes of ventilation, or different medications, affect blood flow. These measurements would enable us to assess the effects of ventilation and these medications on the cardiovascular system. Until now, such issues have been a matter of scientific speculation, rather than based on data. Dr. Alpan also teaches research methodology and statistics to fellows training in neonatal medicine.
