The latest addition to the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019 programme - the PReVENT Trial


Welcome to the 359th 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. It's been a busy week, with the results presentations of a number of major trials at the annual ESICM LIVES congress, held in Paris earlier this week. The trials which have been published have already been covered in two supplementary newsletters, sent on Monday and Wednesday. All are recorded in the Hot Articles webpage, as is every other major critical care trial of the past 7 years. Of note, six (and maybe more) of the biggest trials presented at ESICM will be discussed in detail at the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019, where we gather the chief investigators and investigators for the best trials of the year to talk about their work.

Due to this being the 4th newsletter of the week, it's a bit shorter than usual, so I'll leave you to look through and see what catches your eye. This week's Topic of the Week is the second in our two part series on mechanical ventilation, starting with a paper on the effects of patient positioning on respiratory mechanics in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on electrical impedance tomography in acute respiratory distress syndrome.

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
