Mike is a member of the Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists. He has been involved in physiological measurement and monitoring since 1978 and anaesthesia of various species since 1984. He is one of the first people to use Pulse Oximetry on animals in 1986 (Arthur, the Lion at London Zoo) and has subsequently gone on to work with most species.
Patents in Pulse Oximetry (1996) were followed by the design and development of the CAT Doppler (2000) and more recently with work in low deadspace mainstream capnography.
Mike has lectured and spent time at every UK vet school as well as Oxford and Newcastle Universities... and he dislikes Powerpoint!
Mike also has interests in extreme athletic performance and medicine, trauma medicine and nutrition.
