Description of Clinical Expertise

Dr. Reilly is board certified in pulmonary, critical care, and internal medicine. He currently attends in the Medical Intensive Care Unit and on the Critical Care Outreach and Procedure Service at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. His clinical expertise include critical care medicine, ventilator management, the acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, bedside procedures, and resuscitation.

Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Reilly conducts translational patient-oriented research in critical care medicine aimed at understanding clinical and molecular risk factors for sepsis and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). He collaborates with other members of the faculty to conduct prospective cohort studies of critically ill patients with severe sepsis and acute trauma. Currently, his research focuses on understanding a novel association between the ABO blood group and risk of organ dysfunction (i.e. ARDS and acute kidney injury) in the setting of trauma and severe sepsis. His ultimate goal is to provide mechanistic insights into critical illness that can be translated to improved care for patients suffering from sepsis and ARDS.
