ESICM Trials

ESICM aims to foster collaborative research among its members and to promote European Intensive Care Research. The Society has supported 18 Trial Group studies to date, that have enrolled more than 67,000 patients in total (update October 2023). All studies, observational or interventional, were international multicentric. The Trial Group contributed to the advancement of knowledge of research in intensive care.

Procedures for ethical committees vary between countries.  In order to facilitate the organisation of your research project you can find relevant information on the European Network of Research Ethics Committees website and on the WHO National Committees database.
