Dr Yogen Singh is a Consultant Neonatologist and Expertise in Paediatric Cardiology at Cambridge University Hospitals in the UK. He is an Associate Lecturer at the School of Clinical Medicine University of Cambridge and he holds an Honorary Consultant position at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
Dr Singh is the Chair of the ESPNIC (European Society of Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit) Cardiovascular Dynamics section and Co-chair for the ESPNIC Point-of-care-ultrasound (POCUS) Working Group. He is also Academic and Educational lead at the PECSIG executive committee in the UK. He is a member of the European Neonatologist Performed Echocardiography (NPE) Steering Committee.
Dr Singh has special interest in neonatal haemodynamics and functional echocardiography, especially advanced functional echocardiography. He has published numerous scholarly articles in peer reviewed journals. He is the lead author for the “Expert Consensus Statement on Neonatologist Performed Echocardiography (NPE) in the UK” and “Education, training, and accreditation of Neonatologist Performed Echocardiography in Europe—framework for practice”. He has established link with the world experts in neonatologist performed echocardiography and POCUS to drive it through with an intention to make a standard practice in the neonatal and paediatric intensive care units across the world.
Dr Yogen Singh is a well-known expert in functional echocardiography, he is frequently invited to give talks in the international conferences, and he has facilitated over 30 echo workshops worldwide. He is passionate about training neonatal and paediatric intensivists in functional echocardiography and POCUS training so it can be routinely used in clinical practice for decision making based upon anatomical and physiological information. He is the Director at ‘Cambridge Paediatric and Neonatal Echocardiography Course’ and ‘Training in Pediatric Intensive Care and Neonatal Echocardiography (TINEC)’ course in Lausanne, Switzerland.
