Welcome to the 327th Critical Care Reviews Newsletter, bringing you the best critical care research and open access articles from across the medical literature over the past seven days. It's been a quiet week for research publications, but there are still loads of great articles to read, including a guideline on assessment of sublingual microcirculation, narrative reviews on paediatric traumatic brain injury, anaphylaxis, cerebral venous thrombosis and integration of bedside ultrasound into the ICU; editorials on nutritional management during noninvasive ventilation and maternal sepsis; commentaries on acute-on-chronic liver failure and cardiac output monitoring; plus correspondence on the long overdue banning of hydroxyethyl starch solutions.
This week's Topic of the Week is a selection of recent sepsis guidelines, starting with the Japanese guidelines for the management of sepsis and septic shock 2016 in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.
