ST6 in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
MBBS | MA (Cantab) | MRCP(UK) | FRCA | FFICM
Romit qualified from University of Cambridge and Imperial College School of Medicine. After foundation training he completed a core medical rotation at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and was a Registrar in acute medicine in the East of England deanery. Following a year of critical care at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, Australia, he transferred to anaesthetic and intensive care training in the East of England, and has been developing his interest in improvement science. He is Chief Resident for anaesthesia at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
Romit is investigating the manner in which patients are mechanically ventilated in the critical care units. He has been using mathematical modelling of “big data” to predict outcomes, and inform quality improvement interventions. Using these techniques, Romit hopes to change the way patients are mechanically ventilated to minimise harm and improve critical care outcomes.
