ICU Hypotension Survey
International Survey amongst Physicians and Nurses Regarding Used Definitions, Incidence, Current Treatment
Strategies and Perceived Outcome of Hypotension in Intensive Care Patients.
The lack of consensus regarding a universal definition of hypotension in ICU patients and the need of being proactive
rather than reactive towards hypotensive episodes formed a trigger to develop an international survey. It studies
the current opinion on definitions, incidence, treatment strategies and perceived outcome of hypotension in
critically ill patients.
The aim of this survey is to form a baseline on these topics. Furthermore, the results of the survey are expected to improve future guidelines and patient care, and guide new topics for research.
The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) has formally approved this study and it is endorsed and promoted by the Cardiovascular Dynamics section of this society.
If you are an ICU based physician or nurse, please share your view on hypotensive events in ICU patients. This anonymized survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Please respond from the perspective of standard practice in your ICU. The closing date of the survey is March 31, 2020.
