Zane Perkins

Honorary Lecturer

I studied medicine in Johannesburg, South Africa, where my special interest in the care of the critically injured developed. Since then, I have worked in busy trauma systems both in South Africa and England and have qualifications in Surgery, Anaesthesia and Pre-Hospital Care. Together with trauma surgery, my interests include pre-hospital trauma care and I am an emeritus doctor with London’s Air Ambulance.

Awards

President’s Poster Prize. Society of Academic & Research Surgery (SARS), 2013.

Teaching

Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), RCS Eng: Course director and instructor

Pre-Hospital and Emergency Department Resuscitative Thoracotomy (PERT), RCS Eng: Educational faculty

Research interests:

My research interests lie firmly in the exciting field of trauma care. My Ph.D. thesis explores how Bayesian Networks may assist surgeons and patients make informed treatment decisions following severe lower limb injuries.  I am involved with the Discrete events simulation modelling of blood provision in mass casualty events project.
