Eric de Waal was born in Nijmegen in 1961. He studied Medicine in Antwerpen (Belgium) and received his MD degree in 1988. He did his training in Anesthesiology (4 years) in Brussels (Belgium) and 1 year in the Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein (Nl). In 1993, he joined the UMC as staff Anesthesiologist with special attention to Pediatric Anesthesia (1994-1997), and Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia (from 1996) and Intensive Care (from 2001). He obtained his PhD degree on June 24th in 2009 with his thesis “advanced cardiovascular monitoring”, describing advanced cardiovascular monitoring devices monitoring cardiac output, several preload parameters and predictors of fluid responsiveness. This thesis is the base of further research: multicenter trial early goal directed therapy and dynamic preload parameters in several clinical conditions.

Interests and Focus
His main research interest is the clinical validation of new monitoring technologies (cardiac output monitoring, bioimpedance, arterial waveform analysis and dynamic preload parameters), transesophageal echocardiograpy and optimization of the management of critical ill patients in the perioperative period.
