Aims and objectives

Regional anaesthesia - Our vision is to make patients pain free in the perioperative setting, ie before, during and after operations.

Intensive care therapy - aftercare.  Our vision is to minimise sequelae and improve outcomes after intensive care therapy, such as quality of life, sense of coherence and psychological symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress).

Focus areas

We are currently developing new ultrasound-guided regional anaesthetic techniques with special focus on improving continuous peripheral nerve blocks and neuroaxial blocks. Our methods should be precise, selective, reproducible, controllable and with a minimum of side effects. 

In intensive care therapy our main focus is research in acute kidney failure.

We are currently testing the effects of a follow-up program targeting patient’s quality of life and psychological symptoms after ICU.

Disciplines, methods and tools

Another main area is to develop objective methods to evaluate peripheral nerve blocks.

Both quantitative and qualitative methods are embedded in multicenter RCTs.
