BALLWIN, Mo., Nov. 29, 2017 — Wolf H. Stapelfeldt, M.D. is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Lifetime Member in the field of Anesthesiology. He currently serves in the role of Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology & Critical Care Medicine at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri.
Established since 1818, Saint Louis University is an illustrious catholic university known for its excellence in education. With academics, ethics, and spirituality at the forefront of the university's values, Saint Louis University is dedicated to providing the highest quality to its students in an effort to advance their careers as future leaders in their fields.
Amassing over twenty five years of experience in Healthcare, Dr. Stapelfeldt had completed his prior tenure at the Cleveland Clinic as Chairman of the Department of General Anesthesiology, and assumed the role of Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Talis Clinical, LLC, an information management company spun off from the Cleveland Clinic. Talis Clinical's software distills and analyzes the most important data sources in real time to guide physicians in decision-making within the high stress environment of the operation rooms and intensive care units. This clinical decision support application was recognized as one of the top ten innovations in Medicine during the 2014 Cleveland Clinic Innovation Summit.
In previous years, Dr. Stapelfeldt also served in several roles at the Mayo Clinic, most notably as Chairman of Transplantation Anesthesiology at its Jacksonville, Florida location, which at that time, grew into one of the largest liver transplant programs in the country. Additionally, he has served as Vice Chairman for Education in the Mayo Clinic's Department of Anesthesiology in Florida, as well as Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Physiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Dr. Stapelfeldt attained his Medical Degree Summa Cum Laude from the University of Ulm, School of Medicine in Ulm, Germany. Thereafter, Dr. Stapelfeldt completed his residency in Anesthesiology and fellowship in Physiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
To further his professional development, Dr. Stapelfeldt is an affiliate of several organizations including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the International Anesthesia Research Society and the Health Information Management Systems Society.
A prominent expert in the fields of Anesthesiology and Physiology, Dr. Stapelfeldt had various articles published in distinguished medical journals including the Journal of Physiology (London), Mayo Clinic Proceedings, Liver Transplantation, Anesthesiology and Anesthesia & Analgesia. His contributions in Anesthesiology are focused on the development of predictive models and electronic systems to guide physicians in decision-making about patient care. He most recently introduced the 'SLUScore', a novel method to quantify less than normal blood pressure, a common occurrence under anesthesia, with regard to its risk for adverse outcome. Automatically tracking patients' SLUScores during surgery, in an effort to identify and minimize harmful exposures to lower than sufficient blood pressure, holds the promise of significantly reducing serious complications, including death, which all too commonly ensue in the days and weeks after surgery.
In recognition of his professional achievements, Dr. Stapelfeldt was the recipient of the Edward C. Kendall Award from the Mayo Clinic in 1988. Additionally, as already mentioned above, his work on clinical decision support was recognized with a Top Ten Innovation in Medicine Award at the 2014 Cleveland Clinic Innovation Summit.
