Panel Discussion at the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2018

The Best Critical Care Trials of 2017 & Trials to Watch Out For in 2018

Chaired by Prof Danny McAuley (Belfast)


Welcome to the 346th 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 the prehospital use of plasma during air medical transport of trauma patients & in-bed leg cycling and muscle electrical stimulation; systematic reviews and meta analyses on red blood cell transfusion in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction & the association of hyperoxia with mortality in critically ill patients; plus an observational study on the association between the New York Sepsis Care Mandate and in-hospital mortality in pediatric sepsis. There is also a Japanese guideline on acute kidney injury; as well as narrative reviews on acute pancreatitis, fluid resuscitation during early sepsis, & hepatic encephalopathy and cirrhotic cardiomyopathy; editorials on albumin in the small volume resuscitation era and early nutrition therapy in critical illness and shock; plus a commentary on burnout.

Given the extreme heat the planet is experiencing at present, this week's Topic of the Week is heat-related illnesses, starting with a paper on heat stroke in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on endocrine dysfunction during sepsis—are changes in hormone levels a physiological adaptation or a therapeutic target?
