Welcome to the 458th 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 randomised controlled trials on antithrombin supplementation during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation & the effect of aspirin on deaths associated with sepsis in healthy older people; systematic reviews and meta analyses on high-flow nasal oxygen during the intraoperative period & polymyxin B-immobilized hemoperfusion for sepsis and septic shock; and observational studies on intra-arrest transport vs continued on-scene resuscitation in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest & a prognostic score for 1-year unplanned rehospitalization or death of adult sepsis survivors. There are also guidelines on nutrition management for critically and acutely unwell hospitalised patients with COVID-19 & the conduct of observational critical care research for the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond; narrative reviews on acute ischemic stroke & anticoagulation strategies in extracorporeal circulatory devices; editorials on vitamin C and thiamine for sepsis severe COVID-19 infections; and commentaries on how i select which patients with ARDS should be treated with venovenous ECMO & delivering options for preventing and treating COVID-19.

This week's Topic of the Week is interstitial lung disease, starting with a paper on acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: lessons learned from acute respiratory distress syndrome in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on mechanical support in early cardiogenic shock: what is the role of intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation?
