He serves as the inaugural director for the Perioperative Outcomes and Informatics Collaborative (POIC) a large perioperative outcomes collaborative research program that is staffed with several research nurses, fellows, technicians, students, data scientists and administrative staff and is a center of excellence for clinical trials across specialties. His research interests include prediction of post-operative respiratory and cardiac events on the regular nursing floor using wearable monitoring, use of large datasets for perioperative outcomes research, effects of hypotension in critically ill patients and use of novel vasopressors in shock states in the ICU. He is a previous FAER-MRTG awardee, and a Wake Forest CTSA KL2 recipient for his work on wireless wearable monitoring. Dr. Khanna has published more than a 150 peer-reviewed papers, two-dozen book chapters, editorials, invited non-peer reviewed articles, and has been invited to talk about this work at prestigious national and international forums. From 2015-2017, Dr. Khanna led the Angiotensin II in High Output Shock (ATHOS3) trial and the publication of this work in the NEJM. This work translated to the US FDA approval of this novel vasopressor for management of broad indications of high output shock and is currently being used across the United States in critically ill patients.
