EBPOM London 2020 | SNAP-2 EPICCS; summary results

"It's useful to reflect on what SNAP-2 EPICCS might offer us in the brave new world that we find ourselves in with Coronavirus"

The 2nd Sprint National Anaesthesia Project: Epidemiology of Critical Care after Surgery (SNAP-2 - EPICCS) study launched in March 2017 around the UK. More than 2,200 investigators at more than 250 sites across the UK were signed up to take part. The observational study collected data on all patients undergoing inpatient surgery during a one-week period (21 March to 27 March) in UK NHS hospitals.

What is the scale of the problem; when it comes to cancellation of inpatient surgery surgery, with a specific lens on critical care capacity? What about the value of higher levels of post operative care for high risk surgical patients? What are the essential ingredients for higher intensity post operative care?

Also, learn about some of the organically developed solutions that have come around to capacity issues for high risk surgical patients in the NHS and overseas. As well as this hear how we might select patients to be admitted to higher levels of care; the methods that we might use for risk stratification of inpatient surgical patients and what we think the potential benefits of post operative high levels of care could be. Do we have any data to support the notion that critical care confers benefits on post surgical patients?
