About the Author

Claire Colebourn, Consultant Medical Intensivist, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK,Jim Newton, Consultant Cardiologist, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK

Dr Claire Colebourn is a consultant physician working full time in critical care in a busy teaching hospital. She has a strong interest in education and set up the UK's first dedicated intensive care echocardiography training programme now in its seventh successful year. Dr Colebourn's involvement with creating a new accreditation process for the British Society of Echocardiography, to address the specific training needs of critical care clinician-echocardiographers, inspired her to write this book with alumni of the Oxford Critical Care Echo Fellowship and Dr Jim Newton who runs the program with her.

Dr Jim Newton is involved in all aspects of echocardiography and has a specialist interest in the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of patients with valvular heart disease.
