 SMACC Sydney WO


Welcome to the 380th 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 randomised controlled trials on coronary angiography after cardiac arrest without ST-segment elevation, non-invasive ventilation versus high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy with apnoeic oxygenation for preoxygenation before intubation of patients with acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure, & early goal-directed haemodynamic optimization of cerebral oxygenation in comatose survivors after cardiac arrest; a guideline on acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding; and narrative reviews on gut integrity in critical illness; clinical pharmacology of antibiotics, & successful digestive tract decontamination.

Based on a huge series of over 40 papers from The American Statistician, this week's Topic of the Week is p-values, starting with a paper on what have we (not) learnt from millions of scientific papers with p values? in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on organ donation after circulatory death.

To those of you lucky enough to be in Sydney for the last SMACC, have a great week. Unfortunately i can't make this one, but will be there in spirit and am following on Twitter (as much as I can). Onto the next great project!

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
