Course summary

Opportunities are available for DM/PhD studentships and Research Fellowships within the research area of Anaesthesia and Critical Care. The applicants and fellows are encouraged to discuss plans of their research with Professors Ravi Mahajan, Jonathan Hardman and/or Dr Iain Moppett.

We welcome new research ideas and help the candidates to develop these into viable projects. The candidates must familiarise themselves with our ongoing research themes, as there are many opportunities for them to participate in any of these.

Our principal research interests relate to vascular reactivity, computer simulation of physiological function, the septic patient, and muscle function in critically ill patients. We have ongoing research programme in the area of patient safety and quality improvement. A number of areas are being addressed including safety culture, medication errors, systems approach and consensus methodology.

Studies of vascular reactivity have included investigation of the effects of anaesthetic agents on cerebral blood flow and laboratory investigations into the effects of substances present in the serum of septic patients on contractility of isolated coronary arteries. A programme of investigation into the potential for a safe and effective cerebral vasodilator to treat patients with cerebrovascular spasm will start shortly.

Very complex computer simulations have been developed to study the lung and the cerebral circulation. These simulations can be used to study extreme conditions which could not be investigated in man. They are also able to avoid the need for animal experimentation.
