Philosophy of Care

It is my privilege to care for sick children and to support both children and their families during life-threatening and critical illness. I strive to provide care for children and their families in a compassionate and evidence-based fashion while working with a multidisciplinary and caring team made up of physicians, nurses, and many other support staff.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Goudy is a pediatric critical care physician who provides clinical services for critically ill pediatric patients in a tertiary pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU). In this clinical arena, Dr. Goudy leads a specialized team to help recognize, resuscitate, stabilize, and provide ongoing care for infants and children with life-threatening illnesses.

Research/Academic Interests

Pulmonary hypertension is a severe disease marked by increased pressure in the blood vessels within the lungs. Particularly common in premature infants and those with congenital heart disease, longstanding untreated pulmonary hypertension leads to respiratory and heart failure. As director of the pediatric pulmonary hypertension program at UC Davis, Dr. Goudy helps evaluate and manage children with this debilitating illness. The multidisciplinary pulmonary hypertension team includes members from pediatric cardiology, pulmonology, neonatology, critical care, cardiothoracic surgery, and pharmacy.
