Welcome to the 386th 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 observational studies on re-appraisal of ventilator-free days, emulating a novel clinical trial using existing observational data & the effect of carbapenem resistance on outcomes of bloodstream infection caused by Enterobacteriaceae in low-income and middle-income countries. There is also a guideline on perioperative care in cardiac surgery; narrative reviews on cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction & multiple organ support therapy; commentaries on using instrumental variables to address bias from unobserved confounders & how to feed a patient with acute kidney injury; as well as correspondence on hydrocortisone, ascorbic acid, and thiamine (HAT) therapy & a simple technique of non-endoscopic insertion of a post-pyloric feeding tube

This week's Topic of the Week is weaning failure, starting with a paper on the ABC of weaning failure in today's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one article this week, try this one on norepinephrine in septic shock.
