Biography

Dr. Johnson is an emergency physician and intensivist. He cares for patients in the Emergency Department and Medical Intensive Care Unit, and on the Neurocritical Care Service at Harborview Medical Center. He strives to improve the care of critically ill patients in the prehospital and emergency department settings, and ensure safe transitions to the intensive care unit.

Dr. Johnson studies cardiac arrest, with a focus on oxygenation, ventilation, lung injury, and extracorporeal support.  He is interested in determining how mechanical ventilation strategies might impact outcome after cardiac arrest, and how extracorporeal technologies might be used to support patients with failing hearts and lungs. He also participates in trials examining the prevention and early treatment of ARDS and sepsis. He receives funding from the National Institutes of Health and Medic One Foundation. Additionally, he serves as the Associate Program Director for the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship.
