Children's Perioperative Lab (ChiPLab) - Department of Anaesthesia

We undertake research in a number of areas related to anaesthesia and patient care. This includes pain management, pre-hospital trauma management, malignant hyperthermia, and the application of virtual and augmented reality in perioperative and periprocedural care. We also conduct research in cardiovascular monitoring in theatre, and monitoring of the brain during anaesthesia and intensive care.

We support the training of medical students, registrars and fellows in research activities and assist other departments in multidisciplinary research activities. We have collaborative projects with many other national and international research groups, and aim to support the growing community of paediatric anaesthesia and perioperative medicine researchers worldwide.
