Dr Chris O'Callaghan University of Melbourne
Chris O'Callaghan is a Clinical Pharmacologist and Director of General Medicine at Austin Health. His clinical research career began with studies investigating the role of elevated blood pressure in insulin resistance. Over time, clinical need and research interests have led him to establish a clinic that specialises in disorders of blood pressure control. He therefore has extensive experience with managing orthostatic hypotension in its two patient groups: younger patients, who suffer from postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), chronic fatigue syndrome or spinal cord injury; and older patients who have diabetes or extra-pyramidal disorders. Dr O'Callaghan is currently a principal investigator on a Victorian Neurotrauma Initiative program grant investigating the clinical implications of disordered blood pressure control in spinal cord injury.

Dr O'Callaghan is a physician with expertise in autonomic neuropathies who is working with us on the treatment of cardiovascular consequences of spinal cord injuries and its treatment. Chris was the first to apply continuous cardiovascular monitoring to SCI patients and it was he who first recognised and provided quantitative measurement of the paradoxical nocturnal hypertension and nocturnal polyurea of SCI patients. He has tested the effectiveness of vasodilator drugs in these patients. He has thus provided the first evidence that an effective therapy can be developed.
