Our study is an investigator-initiated study endorsed by the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society Clinical Trials Group and primarily funded by a research partnership grant from the Health Research Council of New Zealand. In addition, Baxter Healthcare is manufacturing and providing masked study fluid and a grant to support the study. Baxter Healthcare had no role in the development of the study protocol and all study analyses will be conducted independently of the funding organisations.
