Introduction

ASA and the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI) want to hear from anesthesia groups regarding whether their practices collect and report data on intraoperative hypotension. Studies have shown that low mean arterial pressure during non-cardiac surgery is associated with increased risk of acute kidney injury, myocardial injury, and mortality and the risk is a function of both hypotension severity and duration. Please take this brief survey (4-6 minutes) regarding your collection (or not) of, and challenges with, collecting and reporting hypotension data. Your input will help inform ASA/AQI quality improvement efforts and the development of future anesthesia quality measures.
 
If you are eligible to complete the survey, and as a thank you for completing the survey, you will have the chance to win one of five $200 gift cards (if you provide your email in the final question). You will not be contacted unless you have won (or are willing to participate in a follow-up interview).
 
NOTE: Only one person within your practice per facility should complete the survey.
 
If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Tom Miller, ASA Director of Analytics and Research Services (t.miller@asahq.org).
 
Thank you in advance for your time and expertise!
