Who?
Dr Rajin Chowdhury

What's the talk about?

Why do doctors sometimes render their patients unconscious? What is a "medically-induced coma"? Do anaesthetists really do crosswords once patients are asleep? How do you know when to stop CPR? And how do you determine somebody is dead? And why does anaesthetics have anything to do with intensive care?

If you've ever wondered about any of these things, this talk is for you. Raj hopes to remove some of the mystery around anaesthetics and intensive care, two of the least well-understood but most exciting specialities in modern clinical practice.

Dr Rajin Chowdhury is an anaesthetic and intensive care registrar working in Sheffield and South Yorkshire. He qualified from the University of Sheffield in 2010 where he is an Honorary Clinical Teacher. He began specialty training in anaesthetics in 2013 and is now dual training in both anaesthetics and intensive care to become a consultant in 2022-3.

He works regularly with unconscious patients. This includes elective and emergency anaesthesia in the operating theatre and management of the "medically-induced coma" on the intensive care unit.
