1. (November 2004 – June 2005 ):Residential -in -house Consultant Anaesthetist and Intensivist at Chittaranjan Advanced Medical Referral
Institute (CAMRI), Burdwan, India-CAMRI is a Multispecialty Hospital and a Referral Institute for Trauma and Neurosurgery.
Dr. Bandopadhyay has provided anaesthetic careto about 350 cases independently in this Hospital including Trauma, Neurosurgical (including Paediatric), Orthopaedic, General Surgical, Gynaecological, Obstetric and Uro-surgical cases. He was in-charge of a 12 bedded Medical ICU and 6 bedded Neurosurgical ITU in this Hospital.

2.( June 2005-February 2007 ): Senior Registrar in the Department of Anaesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Apollo Gleneagles
Hospital, Kolkata. Apollo Gleneagles is Multispecialty Hospital with multinational presence and ‘state of the art’ facilities.
.
During the last one year of his tenure at Apollo, he was exclusively trained in Cardiothoracic Anaestheia and Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care under able guidance. Our unit only dealt with Adult Cardiac Surgery. The case mix was approximately 70%-80% CABGs (coronary artery bypass grafting) and 20%-30 % valve cases. I had considerable experience in invasive monitoring ( Arterial , Central Venous and Pulmonary Arterial catheters) and was introduced to Transesophageal Echocardiography during this tenure.

In addition as an Anaesthetic Registrar he also had rotations of 24 hours / week in the Intensive Care Unit (Cardiothoracic, Neurosurgical, and Medical ICUs ). Apollo Gleneagles boasts of a very well equipped
40 bedded Intensive Care Unit.

3. (March 2007-October 2008 ), In March 2007, he joined Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences (RTIICS), Kolkata, as an Associate Consultant in the Department of Cardiac Anaesthesia & Intensive Care. RTIICS is a 550 bedded Multispecialty Hospital affiliated to Asia Heart Foundation and is the largest Tertiary Care Cardiac Hospital in Eastern India. We did on an average 10 -14 Cardiac cases daily ( including Adult and Paediatrics ) and were also involved in managing the 45 bedded Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. He was personally responsible for managing 2 adult cardiac cases every day apart from regular rounds in the Intensive Care Unit. 70%-80 % cases posted in my OR were CABGs and the rest were Valves Surgeries and only occasionally Congenitals (VSD, ASD, Tetralogy of Fallot etc. ). Majority of the CABG s done were Off -Pump.

4. (October 2008 –December 2009 )In October 2008, he joined a Fellowship Programme in Adult Critical Care at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto and successfully completed the clinical Fellowship in Critical Care Medicine ( FCCM )in December 2009 . The academic programme was conducted and approved by the University of Toronto. St. Michael's Hospital is a world-renowned academic health sciences center. Fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, St. Michael's Hospital leads the way in clinical care, education and research in heart disease, trauma and critical care, neurosurgery, arthritis and osteoporosis, keyhole surgery, diabetes, cancer care and care of the homeless and vulnerable populations. It is the designated adult trauma center for downtown Toronto and a major referral centre for the province of Ontario.

As a Fellow he chose the specialty area to be the Trauma Neurosurgical ICU to widen his exposure in managing the challenging subset of patients. He was actively involved in teaching and research activity apart from regular bedside rounds. During this period I grew a special interest towards the use of ultrasound in the Intensive Care Unit and became proficient in specialized neuromonitoring including Trans-Cranial Doppler ( TCD ), jugular venous O2 ( SjvO2 ) as well as brain tissue oxygenation ( LiCox ) monitoring. He attended two international conferences during his Fellowship tenure and also came up with a publication in a peer reviewed International Journal (BJA).

5. (January 2010-June 2013): Since January 2010 he was working as Consultant ( Anaesthesia & Critical Care Medicine ), at Medica Superspeciality Hospital, Kolkata. Although being a Consultant in Cardiac Anesthesia, he was primarily responsible for providing anesthetic services for cardiac surgical procedures, however he also hadto provide back-up services for my colleagues in general anesthesia ( which includes the complete spectrum ). Dr. Bandopadhyay was also in-charge of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit as a Faculty for Indo- Australian Critical Care Fellowship Programme, he was regularly involved in academic teaching for Fellows in the Intensive Care Unit. My areas of interests are Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) in Adult Cardiac Surgery,including end organ perfusion monitoring using TEE, Hemodynamic Monitoring, Ventilation Strategies in ARDS, Sepsis Control Strategy and its implementation in an Indian perspective.

Dr. Saikat Bandopadhyay is currently working as a Senior Consultant, Cardiac Anaesthesiologist and Intensivist. He is responsible for providing anaesthetic care ( and taking care of patients in a busy Intensive Care Unit ) for the entire spectrum of cardiac surgery, including paediatrics : ASD, VSD, TOF etc and adults including CABG (both off and on pump ), Valve surgeries ( Repairs and Replacements ), Adult congenital surgery including ASD, VSD, Ebstein’s Anomaly etc. He independently performs intra-operative transesopheageal echocardiography in all patients (including paediatrics) undergoing cardiac surgery, which has a very crucial role in day to day surgical decision making.

He has cleared the Advanced PT EXAM ( Periopertative Transesophageal Echocardiography Examination ) conducted by the NBE ( National Board of Echocardiography, USA ) in July 2014. He is also actively involved in teaching Residents, Fellows and Nurses.
