Professor Susanna Price trained at King’s College London, and continued training in cardiology and intensive care medicine at St Thomas’, St George’s and Royal Brompton hospitals, London. During her cardiology training, she undertook a fellowship in echocardiography at the Thoraxcenter under Jos Roelandt.
On completion of her training, she was awarded the Jill Dando GUCH fellowship, allowing her to train for a further two years in imaging and management of the critically ill grown-up congenital heart disease (GUCH) patients.
Professor Price has trained extensively in cardiology and intensive care medicine, and her main areas of expertise are:
- critical care cardiology, including extracorporeal support and adult congenital heart disease
- echocardiography for valvular heart disease and intensive care peri-procedural transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE), including transcatheter valves (TAVI and MitraClip), GUCH intervention, and perioperative TOE
- assessment and management of critically ill cardiothoracic patients – particularly in relation to acute GUCH, cardiogenic shock, and severe acute valvular disease
- transoesophageal echocardiography for cardiac surgery, including GUCH, extracorporeal support and all aspects of perioperative, periprocedural and critical care echocardiography.
Professor Price has published numerous papers and book chapters ranging from basic echocardiography to adult congenital heart disease in critical care, and lectures worldwide.
Professor Price sits on numerous committees, including chairing the education committee of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the European Society of Cardiology, and was a member of the task force for the ESC / EACTS Guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease, and also for the ESC Guidelines on non-cardiac surgery.
