Dr Sophie Wallace (Perth, Australia) delivers the annual honorary John Hinds Trauma Lecture

Disaster on Everest - Trauma at the Top of the World


Welcome to the 347th 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 a randomised controlled trial on high cutoff versus standard hemofiltration; a systematic review and meta analysis on extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation for cardiac arrest; and a fascinating observational study on changes in temperature management of cardiac arrest patients following publication of the TTM trial. There are also guidelines on the use of viscoelastic haemostatic assays in the management of major bleeding & paediatric tracheostomy emergencies; narrative reviews on glycemic control & mechanisms of sepsis; editorials on out-of-hours discharge from intensive care & liberal or restricted fluid resuscitation in critical illness; as well as  commentaries on epinephrine in cardiac arrest & acute mesenteric ischemia.

I'll add this week's Topic of the Week in the morning, as I'm out of time tonight. If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on common haemostasis issues in major bleeding and critical illness.
