Newsletter 151 / October 26th 2014



Welcome to the 151st Critical Care Reviews Newsletter, bringing you the best critical care research published in the past week, plus a wide range of free full text review articles, guidelines, commentaries, editorials, study critiques, correspondence and case reports from hundreds of clinical and scientific journals.

Unusually, the standout papers this week are two case reports - the first claimed report of spinal regeneration following traumatic transection, and the first description I'm aware of, of a current Ebola patient receiving organ support in a sophisticated critical care setting. The Topic of the Week is brain monitoring, starting with a general paper in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.
