Dr. Goodnough has contributed more than 500 articles and 200 abstracts to the medical literature. He has a long-standing interest in devising strategies for patients to utilize alternatives to blood transfusion for the management of anemia, a concept more recently defined as Patient Blood Management.
Dr. Goodnough has a long-standing interest in alternatives to blood therapy. This includes the concept of antologous blood predonation before elective surgery; acute normovolemic hermodicution;erythropoietic agents to stimulate red blood cell production; pharmacologic strategies to reduce blood loss; artificial oxygen carriers; and re-evaluation of the transfusion trigger.
