Overview

Associate Professor David Sturgess is a clinical researcher based at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.

Dr Sturgess' doctoral thesis focused upon the non-invasive evaluation of heart function during life threatening infection. This culminated in award of a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD), in the Discipline of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, from The University of Queensland. Dr Sturgess sustains a keen interest in haemodynamic monitoring and echocardiography. The scope of his current research interests has broadened and is best collated under the theme of Perioperative Medicine. Collaborations include exploration of interactions between opioids, regional anaesthesia and cancer recurrance; perioperative nutrition and hyperglycaemia; analysis and interpretation of large observational perioperative datasets; as well as risk stratification of acute coronary syndromes using echocardiography.
