Summary of "How do intensivists treat their patients, their loved ones and themselves? Results of a survey of intensivists facing an evolving hypothetical clinical scenario."

Prognostication and decisions regarding ineffectiveness of treatment remain challenging for clinicians and are some of the most difficult yet understudied aspects of clinical medicine. We sought to explore what management intensivists would advocate for a patient, for themselves or for a loved one at different points in an evolving hypothetical clinical scenario of a critically ill patient admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU).
