    About Me

    After graduating Yeshiva University with a degree in Biology and History, Dr. Irwin Weiss attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. He did his training in pediatrics at the North Shore / Cornell program and completed his fellowship at the New York Hospital - Cornell University Medical Center. Dr. Weiss joined the faculty at UCLA directly after training. He created the pediatric intensive care unit database, which now has a record of approximately 15,000 admissions. He is the director of a sub-acute care facility which made him involved with the care of children who are technologically dependent. Dr. Weiss' research interests have been in the field of monitoring and sensors. He published the first clinical trial in pediatrics of a continuous arterial blood gas sensor and he was the first to monitor patients with a multi-parameter conjunctival sensor. His research team was awarded NIH funding for the development of conjunctival sensors and is currently developing a new mode of monitoring of perfusion using the conjunctiva. Dr. Weiss is also very involved with the ethics and limitations of critical care and is currently studying the care of handicapped and approaches to the handycapped in different societies and cultures.
