On behalf of the entire study team, would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to your organisation for your endorsement or support of the intubateCOVID study that has been published today in Anaesthesia Journal: “Risks to healthcare workers following tracheal intubation of patients with COVID‐19: a prospective international multicentre cohort study”.
Researchers at your institution played a crucial role in the conduct of this important international study of healthcare workers involved in tracheal intubation. The key results were that around 1 in 10 clinicians involved in tracheal intubation of patients with COVID-19 later reports either symptoms or laboratory-confirmation of COVID-19 themselves. The Advanced Access manuscript can be accessed here and the final manuscript will be available in the coming days.
We thank you and your clinicians for your endorsement of this landmark study, the largest of its kind globally.
Kariem El-Boghdadly (Chief Investigator, intubateCOVID)
