Dr. Anita Jayadev is a respiratory consultant with a diverse range of expertise and achievements. She graduated from St. Bartholomew's School of Medicine and Dentistry in London in 2005. Currently, she works at Wexham Park Hospital and specializes in general and interventional respiratory medicine.

One of Dr. Jayadev's notable accomplishments is the establishment and leadership of the Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) service at Wexham Park Hospital. This procedure is utilized for the diagnosis of cancer, tuberculosis, and sarcoidosis. With the EBUS technique, central and mediastinal tumors can be biopsied directly, and samples from lymph nodes can be obtained to assist in staging the disease.

In addition to her work with EBUS, Dr. Jayadev has a special interest in sleep medicine. She has served as a locum and honorary Sleep and Ventilation Consultant at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London. At Wexham Park Hospital, she has established a sleep service and can provide expert opinions on suspected sleep-related breathing disorders. She conducts overnight sleep studies to aid in diagnosis and initiates appropriate management for patients with obstructive sleep apnea or other sleep-related issues.

Dr. Jayadev's experience also extends to the care of acute general medical patients. She has held academic training positions in the past and has published several research articles. Her contributions and expertise have been recognized through invitations to sit on national committees.

Furthermore, Dr. Jayadev has a strong focus on patient safety. She won the BMJ Patient Safety Team of the Year award during her Darzi Fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Her dedication to patient safety continues as she serves as the clinical Quality Improvement lead at Wexham Park Hospital and holds the position of Trust Sepsis lead.

Regarding lung cancer, Dr. Jayadev's expertise lies in managing patients with the condition. She is experienced in monitoring lung nodules and treating patients with complex pleural diseases. Through collaboration with radiologists, cytologists, and oncologists, she ensures the safe and timely performance of procedures like EBUS and facilitates accurate diagnosis and staging of lung cancer.

Lastly, in the context of COVID-19, Dr. Jayadev has extensive experience in managing acute respiratory failure as well as COVID rehabilitation and follow-up. She played a role in developing a local "virtual ward" for COVID patients in the community who required close monitoring but did not meet admission criteria. Dr. Jayadev also collaborated with the physiotherapy team at Genesis Care to create a COVID rehab program, benefiting patients with ongoing symptoms after a COVID infection.

In summary, Dr. Anita Jayadev is a dedicated respiratory consultant with expertise in general and interventional respiratory medicine. Her areas of interest include lung cancer, sleep medicine, acute general medical care, and patient safety. She has made significant contributions to her field through the establishment of the EBUS service, the development of COVID rehabilitation programs, and her commitment to quality improvement and patient safety.
