Critical Care Reviews Blog
Critical care trials are fascinating to ponder. Some report findings of benefit with the investigational intervention, many report an inconclusive answer or apparent lack of efficacy. Some report harm. This blog will explore the why of critical care trials - why was this intervention successful, why was this intervention ineffective, why was the trial drug harmful.
Join us for a weekly in-depth exploration of the latest major critical care trials.
