The data is in!
Thanks to everybody (all 200+ of you) who participated in the ED thoracotomy survey over the past month. I’m currently compiling the results and will post them here over the next two days.
Here is a summary of who responded:
- 50% were emergency medicine physicians or residents
- 22% were surgeons or surgical residents
- 15% were nurses
- 6% were advanced practice providers such as NPs or PAs
And where were they located?
As you can see, the vast majority (167) were from the United States. Australia, Canada, and Denmark added another 18, and a variety of other countries contributed the remaining 27 surveys.
Over the next two days, I’ll focus on the US data, then look at the results from the rest of the world.
Again, thanks for contributing!
