Welcome to the 448th 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.

Once again, this week's edition is dominated by COVID-19. The highlights are systematic reviews and meta analyses on hospital‑ and ICU‑treated sepsis & sepsis acquired in hospitals and intensive care units; observational studies on persistent symptoms in patients after acute COVID-19, the emerging spectrum of COVID-19 neurology, the association between discharge delay from intensive care and patient outcomes & the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 in Spain. There are also two COVID-19 - related guidelines on the management of critically ill adults with COVID-19s & antithrombotic management in COVID-19; three excellent COVID-19 - related narrative reviews, including a general review, emerging pharmacological therapies & extrapulmonary manifestations; editorials on critical care journals during the COVID-19 pandemic & when data interpretation should not rely on the magnitude of P values; and commentaries on whether a different approach is required for COVID-19 related ARDS, airborne transmission of COVID-19 & COVID-19 clinical trials; as well as correspondence on frailty in COVID-19 patients & patient-self-inflicted lung injury in COVID-19

This week's Topic of the Week is based on a series in Annals of Translational Medicine on hemodynamic monitoring, starting with a paper on fluid administration for acute circulatory dysfunction using basic monitoring in tomorrow's Paper of the Day.

If you only have time to read one review article this week, try this one on resuscitative thoracotomy.
