Dr Karen Kerr MB ChB FRCA MSc

Consultant Anaesthetist, Departmental Lead for CPET, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (STH)

A general anaesthetist with an interest in the objective assessment of fitness before major surgery and improving that fitness.

The CPET service in Sheffield began in 2005, we have cemented our place within the perioperative pathway for a multitude of surgical specialities.

A past elected committee member of the Vascular Anaesthetic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, the focus is no longer just on the vascular patients but on improving the fitness and outcomes for all those that pass through the doors of CPET in Sheffield. In 2019 I graduated with an MSc Sports and Exercise Science to help us do just that.
