CCR18 ATHOS3 W WO

 

Welcome to the 288th 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 edition are the REVIVE RCT, investigating an exercise programme post discharge home after critical illness, a paediatric trial examining the FAST scan in trauma, and an RCT on icatibant for ACE inhibitor-induced upper airway angioedema. In addition, there are great reviews on status epilepticus, mechanical ventilation, biomarkers in ARDS and research priorities in perioperative intensive care medicine.

As I'm lucky enough to be invited to speak at this week's annual conference of the European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, this week's Topic of the Week is Veterinary Critical Care, starting with a paper on monitoring small animal patients in the intensive care unit in tomorrow's Paper of the Day. This should prove an interesting week's reading for human medics!

The latest addition to the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2018 programme is Dr Ashish Khanna, from the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA. Dr Kanna was the lead on the ATHOS-3 trial, recently presented at the American Thoracic Society and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine. ATHOS-3 investigated angiotensin II in septic shock, opening an exciting new frontier in vasopressor therapy.

There is just over 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/.

 SOA17 WO

 

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.
