POETTS aims to encourage collaborative research in the field of preoperative exercise testing and training.

Ongoing Projects

  • CPET predicts risk of surgical outcomes in oesophagectomy
    Dr D Levett, Clinical Lead, University Hospital Southampton
    Please contact Dr Levett if interested in participating
  • CPET predicts outcomes in cystectomies and major Urological procedures
    Dr J Prentis, Clinical Lead, The Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - Freeman Hospital
    Please contact if interested in participating
  • We aim to establish an open access database which will facilitate research questions. Any exercise testing centre will have the opportunity to submit data.
    The database will likely be housed at the Health Services Research Centre at the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Research proposals can be presented at the National Perioperative Exercise Testing Meeting. If you would like to discuss a collaborative research project, please contact us through the website.
