CCR19 170618 


Welcome to the 345th 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 big news this week is the publication of the landmark PARAMEDIC2 trial, comparing adrenaline with placebo in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. There has been an explosion of discussion and debate on social media since its publication a few days ago. However, if you want the opportunity to hear the thoughts of the chief investigator Prof Gavin Perkins in person, as well as hear an independent editorialist opine, and have the opportunity to ask questions, either during the session or over the course of a couple of days, then you need to get to Titanic for the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019.

This week's Topic of the Week is a selection of reports from the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine's Task Force on Tropical Disease, starting with a paper on the sepsis in tropical regions in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one from the same group on tropical diseases in the ICU: A syndromic approach to diagnosis and treatment.

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 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
