Career Summary

Biography

Having trained in Paediatrics in the U.K., I sub-specialised in neonatal medicine. I have a strong background in academic neonatal medicine, undertaking my research training with Professor Malcolm Levene in Leeds. I have experience at a senior level in major teaching hospitals in the UK, New Zealand and Australia, holding specialist qualifications in both the U.K. and Australia. I have been involved at these sites in the running of research studies ranging from physiology studies through to international multi-centred trials and thus have extensive experience of the difficulties of recruitment and involvement of sick neonates in clinical trials. Most of my research has examined aspects of cardiovascular function in neonates. In particular I have experience of a variety of vascular flow methods, including Ultrasonic Doppler, laser Doppler, flow probes (in animals) and xenon cerebral blood flow. I continued my interest in neonatal cardiovascular adaptation through my time as Neonatal Senior Lecturer in Auckland and to my current post in Newcastle. I am now a part of the Mothers and Babies Research Centre of the Hunter Medical Research Institute, directed by Professor Roger Smith and I have developed the project on the effect of gender on neonatal cardiovascular adaptation with Dr Vicki Clifton. This work has been developed from work that we have done looking at the mechanisms of microvascular control in pregnancy and the effects of preeclampsia. I have been responsible for the microvascular part of these studies. Local competitive grants and an equipment grant from local industry (2000-4) have funded this work, which has recently been performed as part of the PhD of Dr Michael Stark and has lead to international recognition, prize awards and several publications. I work 50% of my time as a Senior Staff Specialist Neonatologist and as 50% as Senior lecturer the Faculty of Health of the University of Newcastle. Research is an integral part of that work and I am currently undertaking a self-funded PhD. I have recently supervised 1 PhD student, and 2 honours students and two summer studentships, all awarded on time. I currently supervise 2 PhD students. I am actively involved in encouraging research participation by junior medical, nursing and allied health staff. I am the convenor of the ABC Children’s Research network – a group of over 100 children’s researchers in NSW. I am the paediatric representative on the Research Council of the Hunter Medical Research Institute. I am currently or have recently been local coordinator for several national and international studies aimed at improving outcomes for the sick or preterm infant including: the ICE trial (NHMRC ID:216725), BOOST2 (NHMRC ID: 352386), the Proprems trial and I was an Associate Investigator on The Bubbles for Babies trial of level 2 CPAP (NHMRC ID:253790) and DAISY trial of developmental outcomes of surgical infants (March of Dimes, US,). I am a PI on the TORPIDO study of oxygen targeting in the preterm and on the PremiRemi trial. I currently am sole CI on NHMRC grant 569285 2009-2013.

Collaborations
Dr Hannah Palliser and Ms Rebecca Dyson, University of Newcastle (2010-ongoing): This project focuses on microvascular function in the preterm neonate and uses the guinea pig as an animal model for preterm birth. Two years of local funding has been awarded for this research, which supports the work of 1 PhD student and 1 honours student. One publication has been accepted and 9 conference abstracts have been presented on this work. Dr Yoga Kandasamy, Townsville Hospital (2009-ongoing): This collaboration is exploring the relationship between kidney size and function in preterm babies and relating this to the appearance of the blood vessels in the retina. It is hoped this research will increase our insight into the risk of chronic renal failure as premature infants grow. Dr. Barbara Lingwood (University of Queensland) and Em Prof Eugine Lumbers (University New South Wales): Newborn Pigs are being used to explore the cardiovascular adaptation of preterm neonates. The research combines expertise in heart structure and control along with expertise in microvascular blood flow. Dr Susie Lord, Alison Jones and Kate O’Hara (University of Newcastle): A collaboration focusing on neonatal pharmacology. In particular, this collaboration looks at the use of remifentanil; a fast acting, short lived opioid; in neonates for pain relief during intensive care procedures. Associate Professor Vicki Clifton, Dr Michael Stark and Dr Nicolette Hodyl (University of Adelaide): The collaborators within this group provide expertise in placental physiology, fetal growth, neonatal adaptation and neonatal immune development. This collaboration has recently resulted in a publication on the the Influence of fetal sex and antenatal betamethasone exposure on the preterm microvasculature. Current clinical trials: Boost II (University of Sydney): Very premature babies may need treatment with oxygen because their lungs are not fully developed but a premature baby's eyes, lungs or brain can be harmed by too much or too little oxygen in the blood for long periods. The purpose of this study is to understand which blood oxygen level (oxygen saturation) is better for very premature babies. TORPIDO (University of New South Wales): When babies are born they may need some oxygen to help them recover from the birth process. We have switched from using 100% oxygen for all babies to using air and increasing oxygen as required in term babies as this has been shown to improve their outcomes. This study is looking to see if we should be doing the same thing or continue with 100% oxygen in premature babies at delivery. Australian Placental Transfusion Study (APTS) (North Shore Heart Research Foundation): This trial is testing the benefits of a placental transfusion at birth on cardiac function and outcome in preterm infants. It involves delaying the clamping of the umbilical cord for up the 60 seconds. AEEG (Murdoch Children's Research Institute): Seizures in the newborn infant are common and may be harmful to the developing brain. They are not always recognised. This study investigates whether or not treating all seizures detected using a bedside brain activity monitor improves developmental outcome, compared to just treating seizures that doctors recognise. High-flow nasal cannulae trial (HFNC): A multicentre, randomised controlled trial (University of Newcastle): This study aims to answer the question of whether High Flow Nasal Cannulae (HFNC), a gentle, easy-to-use new way of providing support for babies with breathing diificulties, can be used in special care nurseries to significantly reduce the number of babies who need transfer to a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) 100s kms away.

Excessive vasodilatation during the perinatal period is associated with cardiorespiratory instability in preterm neonates. Little evidence of the mechanisms controlling microvascular tone during circulatory transition exists. We hypothesised that hydrogen sulphide (H2S), an important regulator of microvascular reactivity and central cardiac function in adults and animal models, may contribute to the vasodilatation observed in preterm newborns. Term and preterm neonates (24-43 weeks gestational age) were studied. Peripheral microvascular blood flow was assessed by laser Doppler. Thiosulphate, a urinary metabolite of H2S, was determined by high performance liquid chromatography as a measure of 24 hr total body H2S turnover for the first 3 days of postnatal life. H2S turnover was greatest in very preterm infants and decreased with increasing gestational age (p = 0.0001). H2S turnover was stable across the first 72 hrs of life in older neonates. In very preterm neonates, H2S turnover increased significantly from day 1 to 3 (p = 0.0001); and males had higher H2S turnover than females (p = 0.04). A significant relationship between microvascular blood flow and H2S turnover was observed on day 2 of postnatal life (p = 0.0004). H2S may play a role in maintaining microvascular tone in the perinatal period. Neonates at the greatest risk of microvascular dysfunction characterised by inappropriate peripheral vasodilatation - very preterm male neonates - are also the neonates with highest levels of total body H2S turnover suggesting that overproduction of this gasotransmitter may contribute to microvascular dysfunction in preterms. Potentially, H2S is a target to selectively control microvascular tone in the circulation of newborns. © 2014 Dyson et al.

Aim To describe the epidemiology of enteroviral meningoencephalitis in northern New South Wales, Australia, with a specific focus on neonatal and young infant cases. Methods A retrospective review of PCR-confirmed enteroviral meningoencephalitis cases in the Hunter New England Local Health District of northern NSW was conducted for the period 2008-2012. Results One hundred nine patients met the case definition. There was summer seasonality, with 50% (55/109) of cases occurring between December and February. Neonates and young infants (<3 months of age) accounted for 42% (46/109) of cases, with 20% (9/46) being premature births. Fever (83%) was the most common presentation in this age group, followed by irritability (40%), feeding difficulties (40%) and rash (17%). All received at least one antibiotic during their admission, with 26% (12/46) also treated empirically with acyclovir. There was one death. Where testing was undertaken, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein levels were high in 90% (28/31) of neonates and young infants, but the CSF white cell count was variable, with 57% <10/mm3 and 21% >100/mm3. Conclusion Early diagnosis of enteroviral meningoencephalitis could alter management, potentially reducing the period of treatment with empirical antimicrobials and permitting earlier discharge. © 2013 The Authors.

Background: Early respiratory management of very low birth weight infants has changed over recent years to a practice of early use of CPAP with early selective surfactant administration, and decreased use of mechanical ventilation. One strategy is to use the combination of surfactant and prompt extubation to nasal continuous positive airway pressure (INtubate, SURfactant, Extubate, or INSURE). The aim of this study is to describe blood flow and ductal flow in a prospective cohort during the transitional period when this respiratory management strategy is used. Methods: Inborn infants < 29. week gestation underwent INSURE within 30. min of birth using 200. mg/kg Curosurf. Blood pressure and blood flow parameters (RVO, LVO, SVC flow, ductus arteriosus) were measured at 6, 24 and 72. h of age and information on morbidity was collected. Results: Sixty-eight infants with a median (range) weight of 940 (450-1380) g were studied. 13 (19%) patients needed mechanical ventilation within 72. h of life (INSURE failure). Blood flows and blood pressure were within reported ranges. Eleven (16%) patients had a blood pressure < gestational age and 9 (13%) patients had low blood flow. Conclusion: These data show a low prevalence of low blood pressure and low blood flow in the first 3. days after INSURE as compared to cohorts where mechanical ventilation was preferred during transition. We speculate that altered ventilation strategies have helped decrease the incidence of low blood flow and low blood pressure. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
