Dr Cecconi graduated from both the University of Udine’s (Italy) School of Medicine and Surgery and the School of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (2002).
During his training he won a grant for young investigators from the Italian Society of Anaesthesia, Analgesia and Intensive Care (SIAARTI) that allowed him to become a visiting fellow at St George’s Hospital where he studied perioperative haemodynamic optimisation of the high risk surgical patient. While there, he completed a doctoral degree (Doctor of Medicine) at the University of London on the evaluation of novel techniques for measuring cardiac output in critically ill patients. After completion of his training he worked as a Consultant in Italy for two years, before getting a Consultant job in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care at St George’s, where he has been working since.
Maurizio has a high interest in research. He is the author of more than 100 publications (articles, abstracts, book chapters) and has participated as a speaker at many national and international meetings. His main fields of research are haemodynamic monitoring, haemodynamic optimisation, physiology of the critically ill patient.
Since 2011 Maurizio has been the Research Lead for the Adult Critical Care Directorate. He is the chair of Editorial and Publishing Committee for the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and an associate editor for the journal ‘Intensive Care Medicine’. He regularly supervises doctoral degrees.
