The latest trial to be added to the CCR19 programme - MIND-USA


Welcome to the 357th 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 the IDEAL-ICU & EUPHRATES randomised controlled trials, examining timing of initiation of renal replacement therapy and polymixin-B haemoperfusion in septic shock, respectively; narrative reviews on blood pressure, capnography during cardiac arrest & weaning from mechanical ventilation in ARDS; editorials on septic shock & frailty; and commentaries on vitamin C in sepsis & shared decision-making in critical care.

Our big news this week is the latest addition to the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2019 programme . Associate Professor Timothy Girard (Pittsburgh) will present the MIND-ICU trial, investigating antipsychotics in the management of delirium in 1183 patients.

This week's Topic of the Week can only be delirium, starting with the very recent SCCM guideline on pain, agitation/sedation, delirium, immobility, and sleep disruption in tomorrow's Paper of the Day. If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on current aspects in sepsis approach.
