Julia Slovis is currently an instructor in the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She performs translational research in the large animal laboratory of the Center for Pediatric Resuscitation. During her fellowship, she led an initiative to build an animal model of prolonged cardiac arrest followed by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) rescue and survival in intensive care. She also studied the effects of vasopressors given during cardiac arrest on the systemic and cerebral vasculatures. Julia is interested in using translational research methods to better understand the neurologic effects of prolonged cardiac arrest, as well as animal model development for the expansion and optimization of the use of ECMO.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
