CCR Book 18 WO

Welcome to the 320th 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. This week's issue is packed full of great articles, including randomised controlled trials investigating antibiotic cycling and mixing on antibiotic resistance, ventilation in abdominal surgery and thrombectomy for stroke at 6 to 16 hours; observational studies on acute myocardial infarction after influenza infection, PEEP and paediatric ARDS mortality and ECMO in paediatric acute respiratory failure; an AHA/ASA guideline on acute ischemic stroke and narrative reviews on hepatorenal syndrome, long-term outcome after ARDS and reperfusion therapy in acute ischemic stroke.

Last week we launched the Critical Care Reviews Book 2018 at #CCR18, summarising, critiquing and putting in context the best critical care trials of 2017. It's available as a free pdf download or at minimal price for a print version. The 2017 edition book has been downloaded over 25,000 times to date.

This week's Topic of the Week is based on a series in Critical Care, entitled "The Future of Critical Care Medicine", and starts with a paper on precision medicine in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.
