The TTM trial (Targeted Temperature Management at 33°C versus 36°C after cardiac arrest, NEJM 2013;369:2197-206) hit critical care like a blast of cold air in 2013. News of its results and their implications spread rapidly and ignited discussion and debate in both the physical and online corridors.
If you are reading this then you have probably watched our TTM podcasts, as well as those of the other FOAMed sites (There’s a list of these below) and read the editorials and blog posts that followed.
You may remeber that in a presentation recorded at an ANZICS-NSW meeting and posted on this site, A/Prof Anders Aneman suggesting that the next useful step would be to run a quick survey of translation into practice. Well, he, along with two other intensivists from Liverpool Hospital in the south west of Sydney are kicking that process off.
They have set up a Survey Monkey questionnaire that simply aims to find out who is doing what at this stage. No doubt, a more involved study will follow on behind. There are only a handful of questions and, from personal experience, it takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
Any clinician involved in critical care, anywhere in the world is welcome to take part. So go ahead and fill it in.
