Interested in anaesthetics or research? Interested in helping improve patient outcomes and experience of surgery? Of course you are! So read on and become a collaborator in the NOF-GAS study…

What is NOF-GAS?

NOF- GAS stands for Nasal Oxygen Flow Impact on General Anaesthesia and Sedation.

This is a clinical assessment starting in October 2018, which will be run by 3 academic foundation doctors, and supervised by Dr Vassilis Athanassoglou – consultant anaesthetist and airway lead for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

This assessment aims to evaluate how Optiflow/High Flow Nasal Oxygen influences anaesthetic/sedation choice for orthopaedic surgery.

Who can get involved?

We’re looking for any medical students or doctors working at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre willing to collect data over a two week period. We expect this to take up roughly 5 hours of your time.

What will I need to do?

As a collaborator for this study you will have 3 main roles:
1. Identify eligible patients
2. Manage data collection
3.Collect patient satisfaction surveys

What’s in it for me?

By completing the data collection for your period you will be named as a collaborator on published work and receive a certificate confirming your involvement.

In addition this is a great way to show commitment to both research and an anaesthetic career on your CV.

You’ll help improve patient experiences of surgery!
