TIMOTHY LAM, Singapore
One of my passions is improving the functional recovery of my patient’s post major surgery. This encompasses taking the patient through pre, intra and post-operatively. I look to extend the influence of anaesthesia past the immediate peri-operative period by playing an active role in managing a patient’s pain and recovery post-op.
I believe that the anaesthetist of the future needs to do more than just being good at managing intra-op hemodynamics and complications. We need to look beyond what we do in the OR. We need to ask more of ourselves than just having an uneventful anaesthetic and waking up comfortable in recovery.
We need to look ourselves as part of a multi-disciplinary team; together with the surgeons, nurses, physios, and other ancillary staff, all committed to improving a patient’s functional recovery and outcome.
I am a huge believer of the aggregation of marginal gains – looking for and improving that tiny 1% in each aspect of your practice will accumulate and transform your practice.
Our mindset needs to change!
