Welcome to the 281st 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 a small newsletter this week packed with great trials, guidelines and reviews.

The highlight of this edition is the WOMAN randomised controlled trial, evaluating tranexamic acid in post partum haemorrhage. Also of interest are RCTs comparing coagulation factor concentrates with fresh frozen plasma for trauma-induced coagulopathy and antiviral therapy for the prevention of cytomegalovirus reactivation in immunocompetent critically ill patients. In addition, there are interesting guidelines on echocardiography and lung ultrasonography for acute heart failure and palliative sedation, as well as narrative reviews on stress cardiomyopathy in the critically ill, chronic critical illness and renal replacement therapy. If you only have time for one review article this week, try this paper on vitamin B1 in critically ill patients.

This week's Topic of the Week is vitamins, starting with a general paper on free radical scavengers, in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting, which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference, will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 11-13 October 2017. The Annual Scientific Meeting will be the preeminent critical care conference in Australasia for the calendar year and will be an important platform that will allow doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners to meaningfully connect and discuss new developments and research in the field of intensive and critical care.

The theme of the Meeting is “Thinking Outside the Flags” and will focus upon innovative and challenging advances that lie outside the safe zone of current practice, as well as the potential dangers that they may bring.  A number of highly regarded international speakers will join our distinguished national and local speakers, experts in the field of intensive care medicine, nursing and allied health, promising delegates an exciting and challenging program.
