In case you missed it, TTM is the study that has set the critical care world on fire this week.
Yesterday Matt MacPartlin interviewed Niklas Nielsen, the author of TTM.
He is joined by Anders Aneman, one of the local site investigators to discuss this game-changing study.
After TTM was published free, online in the NEJM last week, an incredible dialogue opened up around the world.
This fascinating discussion drew in world experts and served as a very powerful peer review on what appears to be a game changing paper.
The process of this discussion has been unique as blogs, websites, and social media (particularly Twitter) ignited the discussion and meant many people contributed from all over the world.
Anders Aneman, the regional trial co-ordinator for Australia, works as an intensivist at Liverpool Hospital in the South West of Syndey. Niklas Nielsen, the trial’s lead author, flew in to Sydney earlier today and will be presenting the trial’s findings at the George Institute for Global Health.
Both of these gentlemen were happy to sit down on a sunny evening in Woolloomooloo, on the waters of Sydney’s Port Jackson to talk about some of the findings and implications of this well executed and likely to be extremely influential trial.
