The ProCESS trial was published less than a week ago (The night before my SMACC lecture on severe sepsis–dohhh!)
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, climb down from your mountain-top monastery, find a damn iphone and read this:
As soon as I returned to the states, I begged and pleaded with the study author, Dr. Derek Angus, to give us his thoughts, he kindly acceded.
Dr. Angus is chair of the Department of Critical Care Medicine and Distinguished Professor and Mitchell P. Fink Endowed Chair of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences and UPMC Health System. His accomplishments are too numerous to list here, so check out his bio page.
I will be adding a ton of stuff to this page regarding the trial ASAP; for now I just wanted to get Dr. Angus's interview up on the site.
