Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The aim of this study is to define and understand the fundamental drivers of fluid resuscitation choice for critically ill patients. The study uses a scenario based survey of clinician preferences using the Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) methodology. The survey will be administered online via a secure database and will take each clinician approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. The study period is anticipated to run for 2-3 months.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 293799 0
The primary objective of this study is to identify key attributes that have the largest influence on the choice of fluid used for resuscitation.

The statistical analysis of the DCE data will involve a mixed multinomial (randoms parameters) logit model (MMNL) using a panel size specification.

Secondary outcome [1] 311899 0
The secondary objective is to describe a “willingness to spend” threshold (by international region) where clinicians will switch from less expensive preparations to more expensive preparations.

The analysis will enable: 1) estimates of the marginal effect of each attribute, and respondent characteristic on choice of resuscitation fluid; 2) the relative tradeoff (or marginal rate of substitution) between attributes, in particular the calculation of clinician “willingness to spend” thresholds, and 3) predictions to be made of the preference for current resuscitation fluids.

Summary
Brief summary
Hypotheses: The choice of fluid resuscitation preparations selected by clinicians is determined by short term considerations such as time to haemodynamic benefit and fluid volume required rather than by level of evidence, risk of adverse events or cost.
Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to identify the attributes that have the largest influence on the choice of fluid used for resuscitation. The secondary objective is to describe a “willingness to spend” threshold (by international region) where clinicians will switch from less expensive preparations to more expensive preparations.
