Deltex Medical employs a Scientist Lecturer to deliver scientific (non-commercial) seminars on IOFM (Intra-operative fluid management).

Dr Carissa Murrell delivers the seminars, which take approximately 45 minutes (including question time) and covers:

  • The available technologies
  • How they work
  • Their accuracy and precision
  • The fluid management algorithms
  • The evidence

Dr Murrell completed her PhD in Physiology at New Zealand’s University of Otago. Using Doppler ultrasound and non-invasive cardiac output monitoring technology, she studied the effect of age, fitness, and exercise on the control of cerebral blood flow.
