RACE Trial

Trial Resources

Below are resources related to the project that you may find useful.

Clinical trial registration

The RACE trial is a registered clinical trial on www.clinicaltrials.gov identifier: NCT01665092. The direct link to the trial registration is http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01665092?term=RACE&rank=6


The major research network administering RACE is EMSHOCKNET. The Emergency Medicine Shock Research Network is a US research network focusing on clinical issues related to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, risk-stratification, and treatment of various forms of shock, particularly septic shock and undifferentiated shock. It is comprised primarily of emergency and critical care physicians and the major activity of this network is conducting large multi-center observational and interventional research studies.

The mission of EM Shock Net is to improve the care of critically ill and injured patients primarily through research innovations.The majority of the research conducted by the Network takes place in emergency departments and intensive care units in acutely ill patient populations.
