Survey of current practice - Haemodynamic management of high-risk hip (proximal femoral) fracture patients.

Thursday, 11 February 2021


This short survey is intended to help us understand how a new intervention, looking at the haemodynamic management of high-risk hip fracture patients, might be delivered in a clinical trial setting within current care frameworks.  Your responses will help inform the design and delivery of the intervention and the trial. We would be grateful if you could spend 5-10 minutes completing this survey.

The intended audience are stakeholders involved in the direct clinical care of hip fracture patients within NHS institutions in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, including: 

pilot trial conducted by us at York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust looking at the haemodynamic management of high-risk hip fracture patients showed potential benefit for this approach. Briefly, by using a continuous non-invasive blood pressure cuff on the finger, fluid and/or vasopressors were given to optimise fluid loads and maintain blood pressure. A meta-analysis of clinical trials in this patient group suggests there may be a reduction in complications from using this approach.

Thank you for your time.
