Welcome to the 325th 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 fantastic issue and is packed full of great research, guidelines and reviews. The highlights are the randomised controlled trials APROCCHSS, investigating steroids in sepsis, (SMART)& (SALT-ED), two trials on saline vs balanced crystalloids in the ICU & ED, respectively, CAAM, comparing bag-mask ventilation with endotracheal intubation during CPR in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and NEBULAE, examining nebulization of acetylcysteine with salbutamol in mechanically ventilated patients; guidelines on inotropic agents for patients with acute circulatory failureand fluid therapy in neurointensive care patients; plus reviews on vasoplegia treatmentsand early mobilization.If you only have time for one review this week, try this paper on therapeutic hypothermia: time for a moratorium.

This week's Topic of the Week is a selection of recent circulatory guidelines, starting with a paper on sonography in hypotension and cardiac arrest in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.
