The Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics (NDA) operates as closely associated University and Hospital divisions and provides the framework for teaching, research and anaesthetic services. Going forwards we are rightly positioning ourself within clinical neurosciences and expanding our research aims, as a result of this exciting opportunity, by maintaining and developing internationally competitive research programs in the following core areas of anaesthetics:
- pain and consciousness;
- respiration and hypoxia;
- intensive care;
- simulation and human factors training.
Additionally we have nationally and internationally recognised teaching programmes in a range of anaesthetic related areas (e.g. primary trauma care, regional anaesthesia, anaesthesia in the developing world).
