Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019 Promo


Welcome to the 355th 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 edition are a randomised controlled trial on algorithm-based therapy vs usual care in patients with Staphylococcal bacteremia; an observational study on recovery of over-ground walking after chronic motor complete spinal cord injury, and a guideline on standards for neurologic critical care units. There are also narrative reviews on approaches for acid–base disorders, recent advances in understanding and managing sepsis, cell therapy in ARDS & resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta; an editorial on sodium bicarbonate for critically ill patients with metabolic acidaemia; as well as correspondence on both the RELIEF (restrictive or liberal fluid therapy for major abdominal surgery) & PARTNER (family-support intervention in the ICU) trials.

Based on a series in the Annals of Translational Medicine, this week's Topic of the Week is heart-lung interactions, starting with a paper on the heart-lung interaction in spontaneous breathing subjects: the basics in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on the early use of spontaneous ventilation in severe ARDS.
