Welcome to the 327th 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 newsletter are randomised controlled trials on light exposure in critically ill patients, prevention of acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery, & induced hypertension for delayed cerebral ischemia after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage; guidelines on tracheostomy in the ICU & cardiac ultrasound; reviews on emergency thrombectomy for acute ischaemic stroke, transfusion practices in traumatic brain injury & smoke inhalation injury; plus commentaries on ten false beliefs in neurocritical care, have we averted deaths using venoarterial ECMO? & why research on research matters. If you only have time for one paper this week, try this one on the use of alpha-2 agonists in septic shock.

I'm caught for time today, so this week's Topic of the Week will be out tomorrow.

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
