Travis J. Moss, MD has won first place in the Jos Willems Young Investigator Competition at this year’s International Society for Computerized Electrocardiography meeting for his work entitled, “Continuous ECG monitoring of cardiorespiratory dynamics detects clinical deterioration in acute care patients with cardiovascular disease.”
This Big Data study of more than 8000 patients on our 4th floor showed the value of continuous EKG monitoring data in early detection of patient deterioration leading to emergent transfer to an ICU.
Great work, Travis! You represent us very well indeed.

(That’s right – a study published in the #1 journal in cardiology that was conceived, executed and written up by a UVa resident and a UVa fellow and no one else. Well done!)
