Vision Statement:

Cardiovascular dysfunction is the primary killer of individuals with SCI, and the ultimate goal of my program is the prevention of cardiovascular complications to reduce considerable personal and HEALTHCARE SYSTEM BURDEN. I vision to achieve this through the following mechanisms. First, my laboratory is working on investigating the basic mechanisms of cardiovascular disorders that could pave the way for designing targeted therapeutic approaches. Second, I am conducting clinical trials in order to investigate the effect of novel interventions on cardiovascular outcomes after SCI. Thirdly; I am focusing on KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATION, in order to bring information obtained in the basic laboratory or during the clinical trials to the practical application by clinicians. My laboratory also allows training opportunities for future young scientists and clinicians in order to increase the capacity for innovation and evidence-based care for cardiovascular health in the SCI population.

Research Interests:

For more than 30 years, my basic and clinical research has been focused on autonomic dysfunctions following spinal cord injury (SCI), and I have developed a multi-disciplinary and internationally renowned laboratory in this area. Presently, individuals with high SCI rate autonomic dysfunctions among their highest health priorities, while cardiovascular (CV) dysfunctions are recognized as a major avoidable cause of morbidity and mortality. My research career has focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying CV and autonomic dysfunctions following SCI. In particular, my laboratory has become the world-leading centre on investigating the life-threatening condition of autonomic dysreflexia which affects up to 90% of individuals with high thoracic and cervical SCI. Clinical trials in individuals with SCI directed at preventing or eliminating the devastating effects of CV and autonomic dysfunctions, improving quality of life, and decreasing costly health care expenditures due to these dysfunctions are presently under investigation in my laboratory.

Research Sumary:

Research in my laboratory combines both animal experiments and investigations in humans. This allows me to test experimental hypotheses and find answers to questions that we are facing in clinical situations.  In a recent study published in J. Physiology we examined the effect of passive hind-limb cycling in rodents on cardiac function and the possibility of reduced cardiovascular disease risk in experimental spinal cord injury [4]. This study provides compelling novel evidence that passive hind-limb cycling prevents cardiac dysfunction and reduces cardiovascular disease risk in experimental SCI. Using an clinically relevant experimental model of AD in rodents we developed, we also investigated the effect of repetitive episodes of autonomic dysreflexia on vascular functions in animals with SCI. We demonstrated that injury-induced changes within the vasculature may contribute to the development of AD after SCI. This study, for the first time, provided evidence that AD itself has significant and long-lasting effects on vascular function. This finding has implications for the medical management of AD and provides an impetus for maintaining stable blood pressure. These experimental animal studies were a crucial contribution to our understanding of clinical conditions that are commonly observed in patients with SCI.

Presently, it is estimated that approximately 50% of individuals with cervical or high-thoracic SCI deal with undiagnosed or poorly-controlled AD throughout their lives, leading to multiple ER visits and expensive hospital admissions. Our recent study on knowledge among emergency room personnel in Canada and the USA of the management of this life-threatening condition, demonstrated that up to 80% of physicians and paramedics were not familiar with this condition.  My work in educating healthcare providers to diagnose, treat and prevent AD will in turn could reduce the number of days spent in hospitals by patients experiencing AD. A reduction of even 1 day per stay for someone with AD due to early detection and treatment would represent cost savings of $104M/year in Canada.

My contributions to international knowledge of autonomic dysfunction in SCI have allowed me numerous opportunities to translate this knowledge to healthcare providers, professional associations and patient groups. As the chair of the international autonomic standards committee, a joint effort between ASIA and International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS), I gathered the best evidence to inform standards of practice for the treatment of autonomic dysfunctions following SCI. I was nominated for this prestigious position that allows me to have a global impact on the care of people with SCI and AD.  I have pioneered the development of several tools that put research knowledge directly in the hands of those who could most benefit people with SCI, including the creation of a novel education web-based tool for first responders (paramedics) in the care of individuals with AD.

My clinical and research expertise resulted in a unique opportunity to establish an Educational Cardiovascular Clinic at the Paralympic games. During the last four Paralympic games (Beijing, Vancouver, London, and Sochi) this initiative was supported by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).  The goal of this project is to help IPC to establish new guidelines for the classification of Paralympic athletes that will include autonomic assessments and eliminate the necessity of the dangerous practice of boosting. Work by my team at the Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 was acknowledged by medals from the IPC and a diploma with acknowledgment from Sir. Philip Craven.

Under my leadership as the Chair of the ASIA/ISCoS international committee on outcome measures for AD, an international group of experts developed the International Autonomic Standards for evaluation of individuals with SCI.  These standards were published in 2009 in Spinal Cord and gained immediate and wide recognition and clinical implementation. Numerous clinical trials already include these standards as an outcome in their investigations.
