SURVEY: Role of Active De-Escalation in Critically Ill Children with Fluid Accumulation


Role of Active De-Escalation in Critically Ill Children with Fluid Accumulation. A Survey of Paediatric Critical Care Physicians

Dear colleague,

As you know, fluid management in critical illness remains controversial. While fluid resuscitation is a cornerstone of the management of hypovolaemic shock, it is less clear what fluid management strategy should be pursued in the post-resuscitation phase when fluid accumulation is common.

Our clinical research collaboration aims to investigate whether active fluid removal (de-escalation) impacts clinical outcomes in critically ill children.

We would be grateful for 10-15 minutes of your time to complete this online survey. Its purpose is to understand the perspectives of paediatric critical care physicians regarding fluid management in critically ill children. The survey has been endorsed by ANZICS-PSC, PCCS-SG, ESPNIC and PACCMAN and will be distributed internationally. Your views will help to inform the design of future trials.

The survey is administered anonymously, however if you would like to be part of this collaboration and/or receive a copy of the survey results, please leave us your email address at the end.
