 Yet more great trials about to be announced for #CCR19


Welcome to the 356th 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 airway pressure release ventilation; systematic reviews and meta analyses on thromboembolism prophylaxis in neurosurgical patients & hydrocortisone in septic shock; and observational studies on a Candida auris outbreak, an assay discriminating sepsis from SIRS in the ICU & minimal-flow ECCO2R in patients needing CRRT. There are also guidelines on clinical nutrition in the ICU & polytrauma; narrative reviews on myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery & direct oral anticoagulants; editorials on science without publication paywalls & airway management; and commentaries on bile acids in nutritional support & driving pressure.

This week's Topic of the Week is uraemia & dialysis, starting with a paper on uraemic toxins in today's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on hypoalbuminemia.

The latest major trials to be added to the programme for the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019 should be announced in the next week or so. If you are interested in staying up-to-date with the hottest evidence in critical care, you need to be in Titanic, Belfast, next January.
