Centre for Intensive Care Medicine
The aim of the Centre for Intensive Care Medicine is to
promote and maintain good clinical practice in intensive care medicine
through research activities and the educational programme.
The Centre's research activities are focused on the study and management of critical illness, tissue oxygenation, vascular hyporeactivity and mitochondrial dysfunction in sepsis utilising both clinical and laboratory investigations . We postulate that multiple organ failure arising from severe infection is a result of bioenergetic failure. In addition to our research we also run a busy educational programme for both medical staff and allied professions and are very active in book-writing.
