Reich was among the first to demonstrate the utility of electronic medical records for large-scale retrospective investigations demonstrating the association of intraoperative hemodynamic abnormalities with adverse postoperative outcomes.[4]

Reich has published over 30 chapters and over 110 peer-reviewed articles. He is associate editor of Kaplan’s Cardiac Anesthesia (Elsevier), which is in its sixth edition, and used to be Editor-in-Chief of Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia. He is editor of the text Monitoring in Anesthesia and Perioperative Care (Cambridge University Press) and co-editor of the text "Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography" (Elsevier), which are in their first editions.


Reich graduated from Penn State in 1980 and from Jefferson Medical College in 1982 (Five-Year Cooperative Program in Medicine). He completed two years of general surgery residency at Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, California. Reich arrived at Mount Sinai Medical Center in 1984, where he completed an anesthesiology residency and a fellowship in cardiothoracic anesthesia at in 1987. He was appointed Co-Director of Cardiothoracic Anesthesia in 1990 and was named Professor and Chair of Anesthesiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in 2004. In January 2013 he was named Interim President of Mount Sinai Hospital; in October of the same year he was named President.[1][2] On November 24, 2002, The New York Times reported the commitment ceremony of Reich to Keith Loren Marran stating that: "Keith Loren Marran Jr. and Dr. David Louis Reich are to celebrate their partnership today with a commitment ceremony at the Bloom Ballroom in Manhattan. Judge Paul G. Feinman of New York City Civil Court in Manhattan will officiate." [5]

His areas of research interest in anesthesiology include informatics, cardiac anesthesia, hemodynamic monitoring, deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and practice management.[2]
