Welcome to the 287th 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. The highlights of this week's newsletter are the pilot TOP-UP and SPIRIT randomised controlled trials; a worrying study on data fabrication in anaesthetic and general medical journals;  a guideline on acute kidney injury; reviews on fluid responsiveness, clinical examination in circulatory shock, continuous renal replacement therapy: forty-year anniversary, and an interesting discussion on the management of septic shock; as well as the latest editorial from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors on data sharing for clinical trials.

While Critical Care Reviews mainly promotes the dissemination, interpretation, discussion and implementation of evidence, this week has seen our first foray into primary research, with the publication of the effect size survey that many of you took part in last year - this has been published in Critical Care this week. Thanks to all who completed the survey and the authors for their work.

After the publisher put all the papers for February's Topic of the Week on nutrition behind a paywall, I've added a second set of papers for this week's Topic of the Week, starting with a paper on "high protein intake without concerns?" in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

Congratulations to the organisers of the very successful joint Intensive Care Society of Ireland / Northern Ireland Intensive Care Society Meeting this week in Belfast (John McCaffrey & Rory Dwyer), as well as the organisers of the excellent ANZICS Prato conference (Jamie Cooper et al), both of which I was lucky enough to attend this week.

Intensive Care Society State-of-the-Art Meeting

State-of-the-Art is back, for the 3rd year of its new format and an all-new venue in Liverpool for 2017. The futurism and innovation theme continues with novel topics including robotics, optical imaging of bacterial infection, new technology in patient recovery, and new device interventions in acute cardiology.  

However, the focus on day-to-day care is not lost, and there are clinical updates in acute medicine, ARDS, mechanical ventilation, trauma, nutrition, rehabilitation, endocrine management in ICU,  cancer patients in ICU, the difficult and altered airway, and much more.  Pragmatic "how I treat..." sessions proved popular last year and will continue, along with meaningful debates on UK critical care, including the trend toward centralisation.  

In addition, the trademark vibe of SOA will still be there with pop-up talks, panel debates, 'meet the expert' booths, new generation video e-posters, parent and infant facilities, two drinks evenings, and a new final night after-party.  Registration and abstract submission is now open at http://soa.ics.ac.uk.

There is now under a month until Das SMACC with just a handful of tickets remaining availabe for the main conference. If you are interested in attending the workshops, there are a very small number of tickets left for the Hardcore Intensive Care workshop being organised by Steve Mathieu and Sarah Yong. With a superb international faculty, this half-day event will address your burning critical care questions.

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.

Registration and the call for abstracts will open on 20 March 2017. For further information or to express your interest in attending, please visit http://intensivecareasm2017.com.au/.
