  • James was also the first recipient of the inaugural AEUS Ultrasound Research Grant in 2016
  • Honored as Resident of the Year in 2017 by the Connecticut College of Emergency Physicians
  • James has been an integral participant of the National SonoGames, finishing Yale as one of the top teams 2016-17


Research Interests:

  • REBOA in non-traumatic cardiac arrest to improve intra-arrest cerebral and coronary perfusion pressure
  • Carotid ultrasound for cerebral blood flow measurement during cardiac arrest
  • Focused Bedside Echocardiography for Pulmonary Embolism and TAPSE in the critically ill patient. James is currently the principal investigator in this study thanks to the highly coveted SAEM/AEUS Research Grant.

james-daley-1Fun Facts: Long walks on the beach, reading books (historical fiction is his weakness); playing video games (shooters and real time strategy), traveling off the beaten path (i.e. renting a pickup with friends and driving from beach to beach in some tropical developing country), playing guitar, learning/speaking Spanish, shooting guns, riding motorcycles and the occasional medium bodied cigar combined with a good bourbon/scotch

What I Do for Fun:

  • I ride motorcycles (not the Harley type - I prefer the elegance of speedy missile-like European manufactured machines that go so fast they make your eyes water).
  • I am a HUGE fan of video games (first person shooter ones). I am pretty sure that has nurtured my passion for ultrasound.
  • My greatest love is traveling to the developing world (namely Latin America) and making it spontaneous. I look forward to driving off in search of adventure, good company and hidden surf spots.

What’s Up Next?  Continuing his educational pursuits at Yale with a 2-year fellowship in Emergency Ultrasound and Research in July 2018! There he will focus on his ground breaking and multidisciplinary REBOA study.
