Dr Padmanabhan Ramnarayan (London) presents the results of the FIRST-ABC (step down) trial

Welcome to the 539th 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 highlight of this week's edition is the presentation of the FIRST-ABC trial on a Critical Care Reviews Livestream on Thursday night, with a simultaneous publication in JAMA.  There are also guidelines on aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage & diaphragm ultrasonography; narrative reviews on angiotensin II in poisoning-induced shock & beta-blockers in septic shock; plus editorials on parenteral nutrition & beta errors in anaesthetic randomised controlled trials.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on point-of-care ultrasound for critically-ill patients.

Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2022

CCR22 is now just 65 days away. It features 6 major trial result presentations, 8 reviews of the best trials of the previous year, 3 panel discussions and the annual honorary John Hinds Lecture. If you are interested in the science and evidence which underpins clinical practice, this is the meeting for you. Registration for CCR22, on June 15th to 17th at Titanic Belfast, is open.

I hope you find this newsletter useful.

Until next week
