    Background Information 
    Professional profile:
    Experience undertaken elective and emergency cardiac general anaesthesia and major aortic surgery as well as cardiological and electrophysiological procedures.The total time spent training in cardiac anaesthesia and intensive care has exceeded two and a half years. This training includes a year spent as a clinical fellow in Southampton where I completed a major research project. I have gained experience in both on and off cardiopulmonary bypass techniques, the use of various methods of cardiac and cerebral protection, and blood conservation strategies. I have logged over 400 major (CPB) cardiac cases of which over 150 have been performed by me either as a solo operator or without direct supervision.
    Experience in managing patients on intensive care has been gained from both general and cardiothoracic intensive care
    Have gained training in trans-thoracic echocardiography clinics and within outpatients clinics for TOE, subsequently passing the BSE/ACTA TOE accreditation examination. During my overseas cardiac experience I consolidated my knowledge and skills in perioperative TOE and organised and presented weekly TOE review sessions. I feel confident to provide accurate information to assist in the management of both intra-operatively and post-operatively, I have over 100 cases currently fully logged in support of full TOE accreditation.

    I have also gained experience in the perioperative management of heart and lung transplant recipients and in the management of patients on ECMO and cardiac support devices.
    Personal profile:
    I am a keen traveller and in the last five years have been to France, Italy, Australia, Gozo, South Africa, Hungary and of course have travelled extensively within New Zealand. I am a qualified scuba diver and have dived in warm waters all over the world including Maldives and the Great Barrier Reef. I play golf whenever possible but still have a lot to learn!
