You are encouraged to participate in a survey evaluating the approach to fever in the intensive care unit (ICU). This survey is being conducted by a pulmonary critical care fellow and surgical intensivist at the University of Minnesota.
Fever in the ICU is sometimes controlled by medication or physical means to improve outcomes and the comfort of febrile patients. However, fever is ill defined, and fever control is not standardized. The objective of the study related to this survey is to examine how healthcare providers from different specialties approach fever in ICU patients.
It will take you five to 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. The University of Minnesota Institutional Review Board has reviewed and approved this questionnaire and research study.
Your response is greatly appreciated.
