I promised to provide an update on what’s new and what has changed in the LITFL CCC from time to time. Then I held back because it didn’t make for a riveting read by any stretch. However, now that it turns out that some people are actually using the CCC I’ve started to receive a few requests on how to track changes. Hence, there is a need for occasional updates after all.
So here’s what’s new in the CCC (in fairly random order):
- are traditional RCTs the way forward? Will there ever be a valid trial in critical care with a positive result? Maybe adaptive trial designs will be the answer.
TTM is out and I’ve had to do a fair bit of revising and reviewing as a result. All of these CCC entries have been updated:
- Prognosis after cardiac arrest
- Post-cardiac arrest syndrome
- Post cardiac arrest care
- Targeted Temperature Management after cardiac arrest
- added a great free full text reference
- do you know the injury patterns, complicating factors and outcomes?
- how important are early antibiotics in severe sepsis, meningitis and pneumonia?
- wow, turns out bacteria can communicate! This may be an important mechanism for bacterial invasion in disease states
- this bug is on the rise in ICU, and we need to know about it
That’s it ’til the next update. Remember to leave comments, point out errors and make suggestions on as many pages as possible!
