Neuroscience research among the critically ill: Lessons and opportunities from the bedside

Seminar Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences Seminar Series

David B. Seder, M.D.

Medical Director of Neurocritical Care, Maine Medical Center, Portland, ME


David B. Seder, M.D. is Director of Neurocritical Care at Maine Medical Center. ABIM certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Critical Care Medicine, and UCNS certified in Neurocritical Care, Dr. Seder trained at University of New Mexico, Maine Medical Center, and Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York. He is an active member of the Neurocritical Care Society, where he serves on the Clinical Trials and Annual Meeting Committees, and is Chair of the Clinical Trials Cardiac Arrest Subcommittee. Dr Seder is Chair of Maine Medical Center’s Resuscitation and Rapid Response (Code) Committee, and is the regional administrator for the International Cardiac Arrest Registry (INTCAR) in North, South, and Central America. He is Associate Professor of Medicine at Tufts University, and Associate Director of the Maine Medical Center Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program.

Dr. Seder’s primary research interest is in neurological resuscitation after cardiac arrest. He has researched and published on therapeutic hypothermia, prognostication, shivering, glucose control, drug metabolism, methods of cooling, seizures, and other facets of post cardiac arrest care. He is the local primary investigator for Clear-III, a 75-center NIH funded trial in intracerebral hemorrhage. He has published extensively on various topics in neurological critical care, including critical care management of stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, elevated intracranial pressure, and myasthenic crisis. He writes and teaches board review sections within the neurocritical care society, and actively mentors medical students, residents, and postdoctoral fellows. Dr. Seder is an expert in respiratory support and airway management of the neurocritically ill. He lectures widely, and is an advocate for the regionalization of cardiac arrest care statewide and nationally.
