Under the clinical direction of Dr Duncan Young and Dr Peter Watkinson, the Critical Care Research group undertakes research projects to identify early patient deterioration and long-term clinical outcomes of patients who have been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit.
The Critical Care Research Group undertakes a programme of research which focuses on the identification of early patient deterioration and long-term clinical outcomes of patients who have been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. The research team has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and designs mixed methods projects to enable a breadth of research questions to be addressed.
The team has a long standing collaboration with the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and shares facilities with the NDORMS trauma research team who are also based at the Kadoorie Centre for Critical Care Research & Education. The team also works closely with researchers from the Health Experiences Research Group and Oxford Simulation, Teaching and Research Centre on a number of studies.
Recent and current studies include the TracMan trial which was the world’s largest trial on the timing of tracheostomies; OSCAR, an HTA funded trial to study high frequency ventilation in patients with ARDS; ICON, the world’s largest study of quality of life and functional outcome in survivors of critical illness; PICRAM, a trial looking to develop personalised algorithms for monitoring hospital inpatients through wireless, wearable devices; CALMS which aims to improve the management of patients after abdominal surgery; and a local study looking at heart impairment related to critical illness.
The group has a successful history of hosted postgraduate projects, and welcomes enquiries from prospective students.
