Welcome to the 236th 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 been an incredible week at smaccDUB, which has limited my preparation time for this newsletter. Huge congratulations are due to the SMACC convenors Roger Harris, Oli Flower and Chris Nickson, as well as the organising committee and faculty for making this the best SMACC yet. Watch out for the gradual release of all the presentations on Intensive Care Network over the next 12 months. If you haven't heard, next year SMACC goes to Berlin, which will be held at the world famous Tempodrom, with its near 360 degree stage. Many thanks also to all who came up and said hi during the week.

Following a challenge to a debate at dasSMACC by Simon Finfer, this week's Topic of the Week can only be Data Sharing, starting with a paper on a proposal from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors on data sharing in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

We also need peer reviewers.
