In this section you will find a brief description of our current research projects, carried out at Liverpool Emergency Department by our PhD, Honours and Independent Learning Project students under the supervision of Professor Paul Middleton.
This research explore the clinical utility of a novel technology, cross-spectral heart-rate variability (HRV) and photoplethysmogram variability (PPGV) analysis.
Fluid bolus therapy (FBT) aims to increase the intravascular volume and the pressure gradient for venous return to increase stroke volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) and meet the overarching goal of improving end-organ perfusion.
Investigate the effects of fluid bolus therapy on Emergency department patients by examining changes in haemodynamic factors such as cardiac output, stroke volume, systemic vascular resistance and such through measurement using the Ultrasonic Cardiac Output Monitor (USCOM).
