Donald M. Null, an internationally renowned expert in neonatal ventilation, has joined the faculty of the UC Davis School of Medicine as medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UC Davis Children's Hospital.Before joining the faculty, he was the medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he established the extracorporeal life support program and led the pediatric transport programs.
"Donald Null is one of the most influential neonatologists in the country. We are delighted that he has joined our team and it is our privilege to welcome him here," said Robin Steinhorn, chair of the Department of Pediatrics and medical director of UC Davis Children's Hospital.
Null was a pioneer in developing high-frequency ventilation and successfully adapted these strategies to premature infants in the NICU at Wilford Hall at the U.S. Air Force Medical Center in the 1980s. These strategies revolutionized care of extremely premature infants, resulting in dramatic improvements in survival rates.
He also has 30 years of experience in Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), which is a piece of equipment that acts as a heart and lung for a patient, delivering oxygen into the patient's blood.
Null provides care for premature infants, critically ill newborns and infants with a wide variety of birth defects. He has organized and moderated many conferences focused on novel ventilation strategies. His current research focuses on developing less invasive and less damaging modes of ventilation for neonates, including nasal high-frequency ventilation, and testing these novel approaches. He has received research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and has conducted several groundbreaking clinical trials.
Null received his medical doctorate from the West Virginia School of Medicine, completed his pediatric residency at Columbus Children's Hospital, which is now Nationwide Children's Hospital, and his fellowship at Wilford Hall at the U.S. Air Force Medical Center. He is board certified in pediatrics and neonatology.
