This is a film about the FEAST Clinical Trial, a groundbreaking clinical trial funded by the Medical Research Council, London, and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. It showed that an emergency treatment called Fluid Resuscitation, which is used worldwide, does not save lives when used for African children suffereing from shock and severe infections. The trial found that giving children fluids slowly, rather than rapid fluid resuscitation, is safer and more effective in aiding recovery. These findings challenge current WHO guidelines on how best to provide fluids to children in Africa with fever and shock caused by malaria, sepsis and other infections.
