Welcome to the 442nd Critical Care Reviews Newsletter, bringing you the best critical care research and open access articles from across the medical literature for the week of May 25th to 31st.

The highlights of this week's edition are randomised controlled trials investigating remdesivir & ruxolitinib in COVID-19; and observational studies on patients undergoing surgery with SARS-CoV-2 infection & the aerosol box for intubation in COVID-19 patients. There are also guidelines on managing the airway in patients with COVID‐19 & prone position ventilation in non-intubated, spontaneously ventilating patients; narrative reviews on neurologic manifestations of coronavirus infections & sepsis-induced cardiac dysfunction; editorials on high‐flow nasal oxygen in COVID‐19 & universal airway management; and commentaries on pulmonary hyperinflation in mechanically ventilated critical patients & conducting clinical research during the covid-19 pandemic.

If you only have time to read one article this week, try this one on modeling epidemics with compartmental models.




CCR21 Meeting

Due to the phenomenal success of CCR20, the Critical Care Reviews Meeting 2021 has been expanded to 3 days, allowing more time for major trial results presentations, as well as understanding the best clinical trials published during 2020. We aim to decide whether these trials are sufficiently robust to support their findings and if we should consider changing practice on the basis of them. To help in this endeavour we invite world leading experts to provide independent editorial overviews and have panel discussions to delve deep into the specifics of each trial. In addition, we also have detailed discussions on research methodology, to encourage critical thinking about the scientific findings which form the basis of our clinical practice.
