E-mail: nigel_campbell@ncsu.edu


Dr. Campbell graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London, England. After a year in mixed animal practice he began an internship in Equine Medicine and Surgery at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket, England. Following the internship he worked for a year in equine practice. He then undertook a residency in Equine Internal Medicine at the College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University (NCSU-CVM). After the residency he started a PhD in physiology under the guidance of Dr. Anthony Blikslager. Having successfully completed his PhD, Dr. Campbell accepted the position of Clinical Instructor of Anesthesiology and then Clinical Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at NCSU-CVM. Dr. Campbell is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Large Animal) and the American College of Veterinary Anesthesiologists.

Clinical and Research Interests:

My clinical interests include all aspects of veterinary anesthesia, particularly anesthesia of the critical patient and analgesia, both of small and large animals. I am mainly involved in collaborative research projects giving me access to many different species and techniques. Recent areas of investigation include the role of NSAIDs and lidocaine in the healing of ischemic injured equine jejunum and a sheep model for treatment of atrial fibrillation.
