fluid trips

It's time to learn the TRUTH about fluids...

  • In 2007 across 391 ICUs in 25 countries the most commonly used crystalloid for fluid resuscitation was 0.9% saline, and the most commonly used colloid was hydroxyethyl starch (Finfer et. al. critical care 2010: 14(5) doi:10.1186/cc9293)
  • Are YOU interested in knowing if international fluid resuscitation prescribing practices have changed since the 2007 study?
  • If so, get your ICU involved in the Fluid-Translation of Research Into Practice Study (Fluid-TRIPS) - an international, cross-sectional study with the aim of documenting current fluid resuscitation prescribing practices
