Advocates Event: 24th October 2019

Life-changing research conducted at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital and Wesley Hospital is playing a major role in patients’ outcomes and recovery post-cardiac surgery.

Researchers Dr Jonathon Fanning and Exercise Physiologist Jenna Taylor will discuss their innovative research designed to get patients back on their feet; returning to work and life sooner.

  • Specialist Anaesthetist Dr Jonathon Fanning is researching methods to reduce the risk of bleeding and clotting complications during and after cardiac surgery.
  • Exercise Physiologist Jenna Taylor is investigating whether high-intensity interval training during cardiac rehabilitation can deliver better outcomes for patients undergoing cardiac surgery than the traditional post-surgery rehabilitation routine.
