Dr. Jason Bartos was born and raised in Maple Plain, MN. He completed his undergraduate work in Chemistry and Psychology at St. John's University and went on to earn his PhD in Pharmacology from the University of Iowa. He then moved to Stanford University School of Medicine where he earned his MD and completed Internal Medicine residency. He moved to the University of Minnesota in 2012 where he completed fellowships in Cardiovascular Medicine, Critical Care Cardiology, and Interventional Cardiology.Dr. Bartos is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiology, critical care medicine, and interventional cardiology. His clinical interests include cardiac critical care, resuscitation, advanced hemodynamic support, pulmonary embolus, and coronary artery disease and intervention. He is the Medical Director of the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.Dr. Bartos's research interests include resuscitation, advanced hemodynamic support, and recovery from cardiac arrest. He has performed research in the field of ischemia and reperfusion injury for 20 years describing the molecular pathways of injury in models of cerebral ischemia and investigating potential therapies to mitigate the effects of reperfusion injury in heart transplantation, myocardial infarction, and refractory cardiac arrest. Dr. Bartos is the Associate Medical Director of the Center for Resuscitation Medicine at the University of Minnesota and the President of the Minnesota Mobile Resuscitation Consortium where he works to improve survival for patients suffering cardiac arrest. This work has resulted in the development of protocols utilizing rapid transport from the field, peripherally placed veno-arterial ECMO, coronary reperfusion, and subsequent cardiac intensive care to improve outcomes for patients with refractory VT/VF cardiac arrest.
