Dr. Moore 

Clinical/Research Interests

Dr. Moore's clinical and research interests involve cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia, as well as lung transplant anesthesia, subjects on which he has published widely in books and journals. He also has conducted research investigating hypertonic saline, airway thermal volume in humans and its relation to body size, and the effects of calcitonin-gene related peptide (CGRP) and adenosine on regional coronary conductance in dogs with ventricular pacing.
