ESCMID Study Group for Infections in Critically Ill Patients - ESGCIP

News & Activities

ESGCIP conducted the Survey of antimicrobial nebulization in mechanically ventilated patients (SANEME study) two years ago. Some results of this study have been published already. This second survey (SANEME-2) aims to assess how the current use of nebulized antibiotics compares with the data of the original survey.

Please participate in this survey (deadline: 31 March 2017)

It will take less than 10 min to complete. Thank you very much.

We plan to present preliminary results of this study and a position paper at ECCMID 2017.

ESGCIP Survey 2013: Definition and significance of salvage treatment for infections of critically ill patients

As you know very well from your daily practice, the emergence of multidrug resistant pathogens is challenging physicians and patients almost worldwide.

Our aims:

  • to investigate current perceptions of clinicians about what constitutes "salvage therapy"
  • to have a rough estimation of how many opportunities for non-established treatment regimens physicians treating critically ill patients have in their daily practice

The survey in now closed. Thank you for all your responses. We will publish the results in the near future.
