CCR19 Storm CCR330

#CCR19 | Titanic, Belfast | Thursday & Friday, January 17th & 18th, 2019


Welcome to the 330th 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 highlights of this week's newsletter are clinical reviews on reperfusion in patients with acute coronary syndrome, hypomagnesemia in critically ill patients & lung ultrasonography and echocardiography in ICU; plus non-clinical reviews on preprints & how pragmatic are randomized controlled trials labeled as pragmatic.

This week's Topic of the Week is the second of two parts, based on a series of articles from the Journal of Thoracic Disease on ECMO, starting with a paper on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and cytokine adsorption in today's Paper of the Day.

The big news this week is the initial announcement of the trials to date for #CCR19. Returning from New Zealand, Paul Young will discuss ICU-ROX, investigating oxygenation targets in mechanically ventilated patients; Morten Hylander Møller from Copenhagen will present SUP-ICU, comparing proton pump inhibitor with placebo as stress ulcer prophylaxis; Marianne Chapman from Adelaide will examine her TARGET trial, evaluating augmented calorie delivery; Gavin Perkins from Warwick will review his PARAMEDIC II trial, comparing adrenaline with placebo in cardiac arrest; Djillali Annane from Paris will consider his APROCCHSS trial, looking at steroids in septic shock; and Kathy Rowan from London will explore her POPPI trial, evaluating a nurse-led preventative psychological intervention for critically ill patients. There will be lots more to announce over the remainder of the year. Hopefully, registration will open next Sunday.
