Effects of interventions targeting the systemic inflammatory response to cardiac surgery on clinical outcomes in adults

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:

Primary objective:

To identify and summarise the findings of RCTs evaluating interventions that target the inflammatory response to cardiac surgery and measure both markers of inflammation and clinical outcomes.

Secondary objective:

To evaluate whether interventions that target different drivers of inflammation during cardiac surgery influence the nature of the inflammatory response or clinical outcomes.

This is a protocol.
