Preservation of organ perfusion in the acute and perioperative setting
Anesthesia and surgery are accompanied by acute disturbances in patient hemodynamics and perfusion of the myocardium and kidneys. In this research line we aim to elaborate risk factors for impaired perioperative organ perfusion, and to relate alterations in tissue perfusion in the acute and perioperative setting with impaired, hemostasis, organ function and patient outcome.
The research is performed in collaboration with the department of Intensive Care of VUmc (dr. Monique de Waard), the department of Anesthesiology of the Westfriesgasthuis (dr. Jens-Peter Hering), the department of Anesthesiology of the Catharina Ziekenhuis (dr. Arthur Bouwman), the department of Emergency Medicine (dr. Prabath Nanyakarra) and department of Trauma Surgery (dr. Leo Geeraedts).
