Newsletter 167 / February 15th 2015


Welcome to the 167th Critical Care Reviews Newsletter, bringing you the best critical care research published in the past week, plus a wide range of free full text review articles, guidelines, commentaries, editorials, study critiques, correspondence and case reports from hundreds of clinical and scientific journals.

It's a small newsletter this week, although packed full of research publications, including two randomized controlled trials on endovascular stroke management. The highlight of this week's newsletter is the Scandanavian Fluid Resuscitation Guideline, which was epublished late last year, although not open access at the time. There is also an interesting editorial on fluid management, plus several review articles on endovascular stroke therapy, cardiac arrest management, ischaemic heart disease in the ICU, and biomarkers post cardiac arrest.

This week's Topic of the Week is tropical infections, starting with a paper on viral haemorrhagic fever in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.
