CCR18 v2

6 Month Warning! Tickets are Selling Fast!

 

Welcome to the 291st 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 now just 6 months until the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2018, where the chief investigators for the best critical care trials of 2017 come to discuss their work and try to answer the question clinicians want to know - should I change my practice based on this trial? From Brisbane, Australia, Prof Bala Ventakesh will explore the ADRENAL trial, examining hydrocortisone in septic shock in the biggest sepsis trial ever undertaken. Splitting his time between Dublin and Melbourne, Prof Alistair Nichol will explain the findings of the TRANSFUSE trial, comparing transfusion of the freshest available blood with standard issue red cells. From Nantes, France, Dr Jean-Baptiste Lascarrou will consider the findings of the MACMAN trial, evaluating video laryngoscopy in the ICU. Dr Ashish Khanna, from the Cleveland Clinic, USA, will reflect on ATHOS-3, the first large clinical trial examining angiotensin II in septic shock. We also have Prof Andrew Rhodes, from London, exploring the latest iteration of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign, published earlier this year. There are still additional speakers to add to the programme, so the meeting will continue to grow and get even better and better.

We sold out #CCR17 and had to turn people away. At present we are way up on registrations compared to the same time-point in 2016. So, if you intend on coming, don't leave it too late to register. There is plenty of space still at present, but I expect the meeting will sell out long before its date of Friday January 19th. Don't worry if you can't make it, as the talks will be recorded and put online for free viewing as usual. However, there is nothing like being there in person and having the opportunity to chat with these chief investigators. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure this remains a small, intimate meeting. It would be a shame to miss out......

Speaking of meetings, donations to Supadel have topped $4000, paying for 7.5 delegates to attend emergency medicine conferences in Africa. 43 delegates from SMACC have contributed, as well, no doubt, as some delegates from #CCR18. If you can spare a few euros / pounds / dollars, please consider helping your colleagues in Africa to attend their local conferences.  Many thanks to Stevan Bruijns for the update.

This week's Topic of the Week is thrombosis, based on a selection of review articles from the Thrombosis & Haemostasis journal, starting with a paper on venous thromboembolism in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

ANZICS Advert 72dpi 

The ANZICS/ACCCN Annual Scientific Meeting, which incorporates the annual Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Conference, will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, 11-13 October 2017. The Annual Scientific Meeting will be the preeminent critical care conference in Australasia for the calendar year and will be an important platform that will allow doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners to meaningfully connect and discuss new developments and research in the field of intensive and critical care.

The theme of the Meeting is “Thinking Outside the Flags” and will focus upon innovative and challenging advances that lie outside the safe zone of current practice, as well as the potential dangers that they may bring.  A number of highly regarded international speakers will join our distinguished national and local speakers, experts in the field of intensive care medicine, nursing and allied health, promising delegates an exciting and challenging program.

Registration and the call for abstracts will open on 20 March 2017. For further information or to express your interest in attending, please visit http://intensivecareasm2017.com.au/.

 SOA17 WO

State-of-the-Art is back, for the 3rd year of its new format and an all-new venue in Liverpool for 2017. The futurism and innovation theme continues with novel topics including robotics, optical imaging of bacterial infection, new technology in patient recovery, and new device interventions in acute cardiology.  

However, the focus on day-to-day care is not lost, and there are clinical updates in acute medicine, ARDS, mechanical ventilation, trauma, nutrition, rehabilitation, endocrine management in ICU,  cancer patients in ICU, the difficult and altered airway, and much more.  Pragmatic "how I treat..." sessions proved popular last year and will continue, along with meaningful debates on UK critical care, including the trend toward centralisation.  

In addition, the trademark vibe of SOA will still be there with pop-up talks, panel debates, 'meet the expert' booths, new generation video e-posters, parent and infant facilities, two drinks evenings, and a new final night after-party.  Registration and abstract submission is now open at http://soa.ics.ac.uk.
