South West Anaesthesia Research Matrix


The Perioperative Replacement of Exogenous Steroids (PREdS Study)

PREds is an upcoming trial designed by a team from the Severn Trainee Anaesthetic Research Network (STAR). SWARM are supporting STAR with this study and encouraging SWARM sites to get involved. 

The aim of the study is to determine the number of patients presenting for procedures in the UK who are on long term steroid therapy, what the most common indications for steroid therapy in this group are, and how peri-operative steroid supplementation is currently managed

The study window will run from 26/09/20022 to 04/12/2022, data collection may take place over any two consecutive weeks within this timeframe. If you are interested in getting involved then please discuss with your local SWARM representative and they will happily provide you with more information. Alternatively you can email: We are still looking for trainee leads at various Peninsula sites.
