The 2nd Sprint National Anaesthesia Project: Epidemiology of Critical Care after Surgery (SNAP-2 – EPICCS) study launched in March 2017 around the UK. More than 2,200 investigators at more than 250 sites across the UK were signed up to take part. The observational study collected data on all patients undergoing inpatient surgery during a one-week period (21 March to 27 March) in UK NHS hospitals.
