Welcome to the 390th 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 the association of risk factors at index hospitalization with longer-term mortality in adult sepsis survivors & mechanical ventilation management during ECMO for ARDS; guidelines on decompressive craniectomy in the management of traumatic brain injury & transfer of the critically ill adult; narrative reviews on neurally adjusted ventilatory assist, acute dysnatremias, & diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar hyperglycemic syndrome; editorials on terlipressin or norepinephrine in septic shock & preoxygenation for tracheal intubation in critically ill patients; commentaries on automated continuous noninvasive ward monitoring & clinical scoring systems; as well as case reports on the effects of prone and supine position on respiratory mechanics in a patient with ARDS & tracheal rupture after intubation due to cuff overinsufflation.

Based on a series in the Journal of Thoracic Disease, this week's Topic of the Week is rib fractures, starting with a paper on ideal methods for the management of rib fractures in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on the value of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in the intensive care unit.
