Fill in #COVID19 survey on Fluid Management
Please fill in the Fluid survey!
Fluid Management during COVID
Fluid administration and management are one of the fundamental practices of intensive care. The principles of good fluid practice are built upon the foundations of a firm understanding of the underlying pathophysiological process. COVID-19 is a novel illness and presents unique challenges not just to clinical practice but the entire healthcare system.
We would argue that the principles of fluid stewardship have never been more important in clinical practice than now. The unique challenges present an opportunity to improve the quality of care delivered not just for the current pandemic but for future ones.
- INTENSIVISTS and ANESTHETISTS involved in COVID patients care are invited to answer the survey (takes about 15 minutes) about fluid stewardship and management in the ICU.
- The survey was posted during the last IFAD meeting in Valencia Oct 26th via social networks by the main investigators.
- Since then, the link has been shared many times by individuals and scientific societies on social networks or websites.
- So far, already 279 colleagues from all over the world completed the questionnaire.
The average score so far is 48%, so there is work to be done - as fluids are not treated as they should be taking into account the 4 D's: Drug, Dose, Duration, De-escalation
