Welcome to the 384th 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 restrictive IV fluids in sepsis and septic shock & screening for weaning from mechanical ventilation; systematic reviews and meta analyses on airway management during cardiac arrest & vasopressors during cardiac arrest; and observational studies on lactatemia in sepsis & quality of life and 1-year survival in the ARISE trial. There are also guidelines on diversity & cardiorenal syndrome; narrative reviews on cardiogenic shockupper gastrointestinal bleeding & hepatorenal syndrome; and commentaries on broad spectrum vasopressors, early prophylactic hypothermia for patients with severe traumatic injury & liberal versus conservative oxygen therapy in critically ill patients.

This week's Topic of the Week is enhanced recovery after surgery, starting with a paper on an anesthesiologist's perspective in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on sepsis: evolving concepts and challenges.
