Welcome to the 363rd 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 a relatively small newsletter this week, whose highlights are guidelines paediatric parenteral nutrition, narrative reviews on minimal invasive monitoring and initial treatment of the septic patient in emergency medicine & acute-on-chronic liver failure vs. traditional acute decompensation of cirrhosis; editorials on extracorporeal life support & ventilation management; plus commentaries on intensive care medicine in 2050: clinical trials designs & new tools in the Ebola arsenal.

This week's Topic of the Week is the organisation of the paediatric ICU, based on a series in Translational Pediatrics, starting with a paper on making care better in the pediatric ICU in today's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on vitamin D and critical illness: what endocrinology can learn from intensive care and vice versa.

If you plan on coming to the Critical Care Reviews Meeting in Titanic, Belfast in January and intend to use our free childcare facility, please book ASAP as it's almost full! With delegates already booked from across four continents this promises to be another fantastic international meeting celebrating the best critical care trials of the year.

The energetic editorial board consists of a deliberate mix of clinicians active in social media and world renowned academics, all driven by a desire to improve the care we offer our patients, and operate without financial gain or incentive.  If you have an idea for a paper, and can say it in an engaging manner, please get in touch. We also need peer reviewers.

COI - I am the editor-in-chief of this new journal, but work in a voluntary capacity, as do all the editors.

I hope you find these links useful.

Until next week
