Research interests

Dr. Kunal Karamchandani leads the intensive care research team in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Penn State College of Medicine.

The group has published extensively on management of pain and sedation in critically ill patients affected by the opioid epidemic as well as inappropriate continuation of medications upon hospital discharge in ICU survivors.

Current work is focusing on identifying the role of sugammadex in preventing postoperative pulmonary complications and identifying intraoperative factors associated with postoperative atrial fibrillation.
