Survey: Anesthetic care practices for infants undergoing surgery for necrotizing enterocolitis

Dear colleague,
A group of anesthesiologists, neonatologists and a pediatric surgeon from the Erasmus MC – Sophia Children’s Hospital has launched a survey to study anesthetic care for infants undergoing surgery for necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). The aim is to describe anesthetic care practices for these patients in neonatal units across Europe.

For this purpose, we have developed an anonymous, web-based questionnaire. We kindly request anesthesiologists working in European hospitals where surgery for NEC is performed, to complete the survey.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed with the link or QR-code:






We would very much appreciate your participation. If you have any questions or comments, please contact

Yours sincerely,

Judith ten Barge, PhD student
Alexandra Zwiers, pediatric anesthesiologist
Lonneke Staals, pediatric anesthesiologist
Gerbrich van den Bosch, neonatologist
Marijn Vermeulen, neonatologist
Sinno Simons, neonatologist
Claudia Keyzer-Dekker, pediatric surgeon

Erasmus MC – Sophia Children’s Hospital, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
