Clinical Associate Professor
Retired from clinical practice as of May 2011. Was a 'general' anaesthesia specialist but had been involved with neuroanaesthesia for over twenty years. Very interested in anaesthesia monitoring.
'Intelligent' monitoring has been a great interest and I have investigated, with many anaesthesia and engineering colleagues, different techniques to improve the clinical relevance of monitor's alerts and alarms.
Otago anaesthetist develops unique monitoring software
New software developed by University of Otago anaesthetist Michael Harison has the potential to revolutionise patient monitoring in the operating theatre.
