Welcome to the 331st 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 randomised controlled trials on APRV in paediatric ARDS  & a polyclonal antibody preparation in patients with severe community-acquired pneumonia; observational studies on Karoshi and cerebral autoregulation in the prediction of delayed cerebral ischemia; guidelines on acute non-invasive ventilation & right-sided heart failure; narrative reviews on chloride levels in critical illness, antibiotic therapy in ventilator-associated tracheobronchitis & reversal agents for non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants. If you only have time for one review paper this week, try this one on immune therapy in sepsis

This week's Topic of the Week is Group A Streptococcal disease, starting with a paper on disease manifestations and pathogenic mechanisms of Group A Streptococcus in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

I haven't had time to finish the registration requirements for #CCR19. Hopefully, it will be ready to go on Wednesday!

CCH Journal

Critical Care Horizons is a fresh new voice in the critical care literature, offering thought-provoking, cutting-edge commentary and opinion papers, plus state-of-the-art review articles. The journal is free to publish with and free to read, opening authorship opportunity to all. The energetic editorial board consists of a deliberate mix of clinicians active in social media and world renowned academics, all driven by a desire to improve the care we offer our patients, and operate without financial gain or incentive.  If you have an idea for a paper, and can say it in an engaging manner, please get in touch. We also need peer reviewers.

COI - I am the editor-in-chief of this new journal, but work in a voluntary capacity, as do all the editors.


I hope you find these links useful.

Until next week
