The anaesthetist has the option to perform fluid therapy by adhering to strict protocols and rules-of-thumb. However, gaining a better understanding of how to guide this therapy adds interest to the anaesthetist’s professional life, allows more capable handling of tricky situations, and leads to improved patient outcomes. This author has used, and sometimes developed, methods that aim to give the anaesthetist an opportunity to personalize the art and practice of fluid therapy. This chapter includes tips and suggestions about methods that might be considered.
The Best Practices in Social and Behavioral Research Course was developed to provide instruction on good clinical practice for social and behavioral trials. This study evaluated the new course.
Participants across 4 universities took the course (n=294) and were sent surveys following course completion and 2 months later. Outcomes included relevance, how engaging the course was, and working differently because of the course. Open-ended questions were posed to understand how work was impacted.
Participants rated the course as relevant and engaging (6.4 and 5.8/7 points) and reported working differently (4.7/7 points). Participants with less experience in social and behavioral trials were most likely to report working differently 2 months later.
The course was perceived as relevant and engaging. Participants described actions taken to improve rigor in implementing trials. Future studies with a larger sample and additional participating sites are recommended.
Fully updated and expanded, the second edition of Clinical Fluid Therapy in the Perioperative Setting brings together the world's leading experts in fluid management to explain what you should know when providing infusion fluids to surgical and critical care patients. Current evidence-based knowledge, essential basic science, and modern clinical practice are explained in 34 focused and authoritative chapters. New chapters cover topics such as burn injury, monitoring of the microcirculation, the glycocalyx layer, intensive care, trauma, transplantations, and adverse effects of infusion fluids. Each chapter begins with an abstract, providing a quick overview of the topic, followed by detailed clinical and pre-clinical guidance. Together, the chapters guide the reader in the use of fluid therapy in all aspects of perioperative patient care. Edited by Robert G. Hahn, a clinical anesthesiologist and highly experienced researcher in fluid therapy, this is essential reading for all anesthesiologists, intensivists, and surgeons.
