Invitation to Participate: Short Survey on the Use of Cricoid Pressure

You are invited to participate in a short survey on the use of cricoid pressure. Do you use it? Do you not use it? Do you know what it is? Do you know how to apply it?


This project is being conducted by Caitlin Hutchings (student at Memorial University, Faculty of Medicine), under the supervision of Dr. Geoff Zbitnew (Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at Memorial University).


The overall purpose of this survey is to assess the current practice patterns surrounding cricoid pressure use in Newfoundland & Labrador. Participants will be asked to complete an online survey (the link can be found below). Participation involves answering some demographic questions about your practice as a physician, followed by questions on your knowledge of, attitudes around, and current practices using cricoid pressure.


There will be no identifying information on the survey and your responses will remain confidential. Participation is completely voluntary, and the survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please also take the time to review the Implied Consent Form for additional information regarding your y and confidentiality and your participation, including any potential risks and benefits.


This research has been approved by all participating RHAs, and the Health Research Ethics Board.
