HONOURS Student

Kaitlyn Cobcroft

Kaitlyn Cobcroft is a UNSW student, who is currently completing her Honours project in Emergency Medicine at the SWERI. Kaitlyn has a Bachelor of Medical Science degree from UNSW, with a major in Human Pathology, and will be undertaking a Bachelor of Medicine at UNSW following the completion of her Honours project. Her honours research at Liverpool Hospital Emergency Department is focused on patients with acute pulmonary oedema (APO). It aims to investigate the impact of common first line interventions on cardiac function in these patients, using measurements obtained with an ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM). This project- the ‘Cardiac Output in Heart failure’ (COHF) study- aims to collect and consolidate all available clinical and demographic data on patients presenting to Liverpool Hospital Emergency Department with APO over a three-month period. Using this data, multivariate analysis will be performed to elucidate the therapeutic effectiveness of specific interventions and derive predictive models of patient outcomes, based on differing treatments. It is hoped that this research will inform the medical and nursing processes provided for these patients.
