Survey: Anxiolytic premedication in Europe

Dear colleagues!

This is an European survey concerning anxiolytic and sedative premedication and is part of a PhD thesis on the impact of midazolam on pain. Main objectives are to clarify:

1. The actual standard of care concerning patient anxiety evaluation and management
2. The role of midazolam in modern practice.
3. The common perception of the impact of midazolam on patient outcomes.

If you work regularly in the operating theatre (anaesthetise at least 3 patients per month), we invite you to complete a short anonymous survey about your current practice concerning anxiolytic premedication. Predicted survey time is less than 15 minutes.  Ethical committee approval has been obtained and the survey complies to GDPR. The participation is voluntary and might be interrupted during the course of the test.

For any doubts or questions related to the survey, please contact via e-mail:

Please submit the survey only once. If you have previously responded to this survey in Portuguese, please do not submit it again.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Survey: Variation in ASA Scoring (Milestone-2)

Dear colleagues, 

The society is supporting the MILESTONE-2 survey, an international collaboration of (HPB) surgeons and anesthesiologist in which we want to explore the reasons behind the large variations seen in the ASA classification in patients undergoing HPB surgery. To what extent is this actually related to patient factors? 

A previous study of our group found large differences in ASA scores in HPB surgery between different countries (USA vs European). For pancreatic surgery: ASA III/IV in NSQIP 78%, in Germany 48%, in the Netherlands 23%, and in Sweden only 3%. Since ASA is also utilized for case mix adjustment it is vital that consensus is reached on the practicalities of this system.  

This online survey will only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

Best wishes,  
On behalf of the MILESTONE-2 team
