Biography
Britta was appointed as the first Chair of Paediatric Anaesthesia at the University of Western Australia in Australasia in 2010. Following her anaesthesia training in Switzerland, she came to Perth in 2007 working as a consultant anaesthetist in the Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Management at the Princess Margaret Hospital for Children.
Key research
Her main research interests relate to the prediction and prevention of respiratory complications in paediatric anaesthesia, lung function changes during anaesthesia, the evaluation of different airway devices, as well as the impact of anaesthesia in early life on a child’s neurodevelopment. Most of her projects are performed within a large international collaborative network consisting of paediatric anaesthetists, intensivists, respiratory physicians, psychologists and pain specialists.
