Welcome to the 276th 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. This week's edition is packed full of the major trials presented at Brussels a few days ago, as well as 10 papers from the Annual Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine, seven of which form this week's Topic of the Week, starting with a paper on anemia and blood transfusion in the critically ill patient with cardiovascular disease in tomorrow's Paper of the Day. The 10th talk from #CCR17 was released this morning - Prof Mervyn Singer discusses "How I Manage...Antibiotics". For those interested in attending #CCR18, registration opens in 2 weeks.

This adult and paediatric ICM meeting is jointly organized by the Society of Intensive Care Medicine (SICM), Singapore and the Australia-New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) and is scheduled for 20-24 April 2017 in Suntec Convention Centre, Singapore. It has grown from its humble beginnings in a small hospital venue to become one of the best ICM conference in the Asia-Pacific region. Past editions featured prominent speakers such as Jean Louis Vincent, Daniel De Backer, John J Marini, Rinaldo Bellomo amongst many others, and in this edition the list of distinguished international panel of speakers, program schedule and planned workshops look more impressive than ever. Beside the obvious educational benefits, this conference is also a great opportunity to experience the unique Singaporean culture, enjoy its famed gastronomy and visit its attractions.

The call for abstracts have started and Education Grants are available for selected delegates. Registration for the conference and pre-conference workshops is now open and can be found here.

The Critical Care Symposium (CCS) was initiated to satisfy the purpose of creating a world-class environment for medical enrichment in the North of England, particularly in Manchester. It was envisioned as a common informal platform wherein professionals from the field of critical care could provide and enhance the knowledge of delegates on current practices and related fields of interest.

Now in its 14th year, the annual conference regularly has renowned speakers from around the world and attracts more than 400 delegates. And this year is no different. In recent years a parallel course on ultrasound has been conducted alongside the conference that provides ample hand-on experience over two days. This year will host the 7th Ultrasound in Acute Care.
