BALLWIN, Mo., Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolf H. Stapelfeldt, M.D. is recognized by Continental Who's Who for Excellence

in the field of Anesthesiology.

Dr. Stapelfeldt serves as Professor and Department Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at St. Louis University School of Medicine, a renowned Catholic

Jesuit institution committed to 'Higher Purpose, Greater Good', the first medical school west of the Mississippi, which is preparing to celebrate its bicentennial anniversary a year from now in 2018.

Previously, Dr. Stapelfeldt was Chairman of the Department of General Anesthesiology at Cleveland Clinic, bringing over 25 years of career experience. His tenure at the Cleveland Clinic culminated in 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 making decisions within the high stress environment of the operation rooms and intensive care units, an application that was recognized as one of the top ten innovations in Medicine during the 2014 Cleveland Clinic Innovation Summit.

Further leadership titles included those of Vice Chairman of Surgical Operations, and Vice Chairman of Information Systems and Technologies for the Cleveland Clinic's Anesthesiology Institute.

"Cleveland Clinic is one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the country," the hospital's website states. "We are a nonprofit multispecialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. Our mission is to provide better care of the sick, investigation into their problems and further education of those who serve." 

Over the course of his career, Dr. Stapelfeldt also previously served 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 in the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

As part of his job duties at St. Louis University Medical School, Dr. Stapelfeldt leads and participates in several research areas under the larger realm of the anesthesiology department, focusing on the development of electronic systems and predictive models to guide physicians in decision making about patient care.

Dr. Stapelfeldt earned his medical degree summa cum laude from the University of Ulm School of Medicine in Ulm, Germany. He completed his residency in anesthesiology and a fellowship in physiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. To further his professional development, he is a member of a multitude of organizations including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the International Anesthesia Research Society and the Health Information Management Systems Society. His articles have been published in various renowned medical journals including the Journal of Physiology (London), Mayo Clinic Proceedings, Liver Transplantation, Anesthesiology and Anesthesia & Analgesia. He most recently introduced the 'SLUScore', a novel method to quantify the adverse effect of less than normal blood pressure, a common occurrence under anesthesia. 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 commonly following in the days and weeks after surgery.
