Rebellion in EM 1200

San Antonio, Texas; May 11 - 13th May 2018


Welcome to the 323rd 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 relatively short newsletter again this week, but is still packed with great articles. The highlights are randomised controlled trials on rehabilitation in the critically ill, contrast nephropathy & carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacteria; guidelines on the organization of ECMO programs, haemodynamic assessment and support in sepsis and septic shock in resource-limited settings & frailty in patients with acute cardiovascular disease; narrative reviews on perioperative stroke, delirium in the cardiac ICU & traumatic brain injury. If you only have time for one narrative review this week, try this paper on electrical impedance tomography.

This week's Topic of the Week is a selection of recent neuromuscular guidelines, starting with one on acute ischemic stroke in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

The energetic editorial board consists of a deliberate mix of clinicians active in social media and world renowned academics, all driven by a desire to improve the care we offer our patients, and operate without financial gain or incentive.  If you have an idea for a paper, and can say it in an engaging manner, please get in touch. We also need peer reviewers.
