Join leading critical care experts for a discussion regarding aerosol drug delivery to patients receiving both ventilatory and non-ventilatory support in the era of COVID-19 and how to implement best practices for optimal patient care.
Dr. Sundeep Kaul, MD, PhD
Dr. Sundeep (Sunny) Kaul is a Director in the Department of Intensive Care and Respiratory Medicine in Harefield Hospital, UK where he is also the lead of education and governance in the Department of Critical Care. He has clinical expertise in many areas of respiratory medicine including chronic acute respiratory failure, asthma, allergy and COPD.
He studied at the University of Birmingham, graduating in 1995 and then went on to undertake postgraduate training in Oxford, Leicester and London. He studied for a PhD at King’s College London, which focused on non-invasive ventilation and patient ventilation interactions. After completing a Darzi Fellowship and gaining accreditation in general internal, respiratory and intensive care medicine, he was appointed as a consultant in intensive care and respiratory medicine at Harefield Hospital.
Dr. Kaul also delivers courses based on primary care, acute respiratory failure and non-invasive ventilation throughout the UK. The British Thoracic Society have invited him to speak on his knowledge of non-invasive ventilation for four years running and he also has given lectures on motor-neurone disease, respiratory muscle weakness and the management of candidiasis in an intensive care setting.
Dr. Kaul is a member of several groups including London Respiratory Network clinical leadership group and guideline writing groups for the Department of Health, British Thoracic Society and Royal College of Physicians.
