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.

At a recent Advocates event, researchers Dr Jonathon Fanning and Exercise Physiologist Jenna Taylor discussed their innovative research designed to get patients back on their feet; returning to work and life sooner.

  • Exercise Physiologist Jenna Taylor spoke on her research 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.
  • Specialist Anaesthetist Dr Jonathon Fanning spoke about his research into methods to reduce the risk of bleeding and clotting complications during and after cardiac surgery.
