Global Airway management of the Unstable cervical Spine Survey (GAUSS)

Dear Colleagues from across the world We are once again humbled by your continued help with our research. We are very thankful to now include responses from 84 countries and regions in our survey! We are very thankful to our colleagues in China, Peru, Hong Kong SAR and Ethiopia that have ensured their countries are now part of our survey. We are also thankful of the continued support from Spain, India, Nigeria, Australia, Belgium and Macedonia.

Please however continue to spread the survey far and wide. The more responses we receive the more accurate picture we will be able to get about airway management in each included country. If your country is not dark blue, we still need more responses to meet our target sample sizes. Please find the link to our survey below as well as a short summary and an advertisement for distribution to your members.The link to our study is: link: Summary:Anaesthetic providers from around the world are invited to participate in the GAUSS online survey being conducted by the University of Cape Town Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine. The study is interested in current clinical practice in airway management of unstable cervical fracture patients. The survey should take only a few minutes to complete. Please help us to better understand your clinical setting and current practice.    

Thank you yet again for your continued support of our study
