It's a huge newsletter this week, such is the volume of COVID-19 publications at the moment. I've left some articles out that I can't fit into the emailed version; they're on the website version of this issue. In a break from coronavirus-related themes, I'm going to focus the Topic of the Week on a single condition each day and try to review the majority of critical care conditions over the next six months or so. If you would like to refresh your ICU knowledge, just check out the Paper of the Day every day for an accessible up-to-date review article. We'll start with neurological conditions, and cover the various problems that arise with traumatic brain injury. If you'd like to stay up-to-date with the latest coronavirus related-literature, that's covered on the COVID-19 webpage.



Review Articles












CCR21 Meeting

Due to the phenomenal success of CCR20, the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2021 has been expanded to 3 days, allowing more time for major trial results presentations, as well as understanding the best clinical trials published during 2020. We aim to decide whether these trials are sufficiently robust to support their findings and if we should consider changing practice on the basis of them. To help in this endeavour we invite world leading experts to provide independent editorial overviews and have panel discussions to delve deep into the specifics of each trial. In addition, we also have detailed discussions on research methodology, to encourage critical thinking about the scientific findings which form the basis of our clinical practice.

CCH Journal

Critical Care Horizons is a fresh new voice in the critical care literature, offering thought-provoking, cutting-edge commentary and opinion papers, plus state-of-the-art review articles. The journal is free to publish with and free to read, opening authorship opportunity to all. 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
