Welcome to the 586th 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.
This week's edition is dominated by new European guidelines on major bleeding and coagulopathy following trauma, severe peri-operative bleeding, inotropic therapy in patients with advanced heart failure & burn mass casualty incidents. Other highlights include narrative reviews on vasopressor use in cardiac arrest, intraoperative ventilator management of the critically ill patient & bleeding on oral anticoagulants: overview of reversal strategies. There is also an editorial on the neurobiology of long-COVID & commentaries on targeted immunomodulation & helmet trials
If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on biological phenotyping in sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
This week's visual abstract from Jakub Fronczek, Zbigniew Putowski & Marcelina Czok is on the CLOVERS trial. You can follow us on Instagram to stay current with these superb infographics.
