With more than 20,000 faculty and staff it is one of the state's largest employers and contributes millions of dollars in net tax revenue to Utah every year. But University of Utah Health's impact goes beyond the balance sheet. Its bottom line includes the health and well-being of Utah residents in every corner of the state and from all walks of life.University of Utah Health is the only university health care system in the state of Utah and provides patient care for the people of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and much of Nevada. It is also the training ground for most of Utah's physicians, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and other health care professionals.University of Utah Medical SchoolThe University of Utah School of Medicine was founded in 1905 as a two-year medical school and transitioned to a four-year, medical-degree-granting institution in 1941. It serves as the only MD-granting institution in the state of Utah and as the only academic medical center in the Mountain West.Department of Anesthesiology OverviewThe Department makes important contributions to the high quality and safe care for which University of Utah Health is well known. Our clinical and research activities are especially remarkable for excellence in total intravenous anesthesia, ultrasound guided regional anesthesia, perioperative echocardiography, and pain management. Our residency and fellowship programs produce highly sought-after medical professionals who elevate the practice wherever they land.Pain Research CenterThe overall mission of the center is to investigate the perception, causes, and consequences of pain. We take a broad view of this mission. Pain is more than signals traveling this way and that through the body. The onslaught and persistence of pain depend on psychology, personal history and the medical, social and cultural environment. Though we share a common nervous system infrastructure, we experience pain as unique individuals.
At the Pain Research Center, we study underlying scientific mechanisms against the ever-present background of individual differences that modulate these mechanisms-the person and the pain. It's not possible to understand one without the other. Anesthesiology Bioengineering Lab The Anesthesiology Bioengineering Laboratory was established in 1976 at the Department of Anesthesiology, University of Utah Health. To date, the cumulative research in this laboratory has resulted in the ME, MS, or PhD of over 95 graduate students in biomedical engineering and medical informatics at the University of Utah.The laboratory is involved in the development and testing of medical devices for use during anesthesia and intensive care. It has facilities for simulation, animal testing and clinical studies. Through close interaction between bioengineers, anesthesiologists, and critical care physicians, numerous drug delivery systems and monitoring devices are being developed for patient care.Vascular Research LabThe Division of Geriatric's Utah Vascular Research Lab (UVRL) has a long-standing interest in oxygen transport from air to tissue. Our group's current research interests revolve around the link between vascular and skeletal muscle function. Specifically, we are interested in the mechanisms that appear to limit skeletal muscle function as the result of healthy aging and age-related diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, and hypertension.
One of the many potential candidates upon which we are currently focusing considerable attention is the role of oxidative stress in the regulation/dysregulation of skeletal muscle metabolism and vascular control.About Salt Lake CityNestled between the Wasatch Mountains on the east and the Great Salt Lake on the west, at an elevation of 4,330 feet, lies Salt Lake City.
