In case you were getting disillusioned with research and negative trials, it’s worth remembering how much has been achieved in the last few years and what impact this has had in a positive way!
Warwick Anderson AM, Chief Executive Officer, NHMRC recently wrote about the ANZICS CTG:
“A final example – some of Australia’s leading critical care researchers have joined into a consortium to study provision of emergency and intensive room care and its practices. Some years ago, they showed that use of the cheaper saline solutions were at least as effective, and possibly safer4, than more expensive albumin solutions (saline costs $1.60 per litre – albumin costs approximately $332/litre5). Access Economics estimated that, if practices were fully in line with this finding, for only one condition, there would be a net benefit of around $687 million per annum6.”
