Intravascular Versus Surface Cooling in Patients Resuscitated From Cardiac Arrest: A Systematic Review and Network Meta-Analysis With Focus on Temperature Feedback
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that in patients resuscitated from CA and treated with TTM at 32–34°C, IC has the highest probability of being the most beneficial cooling method for survival and neurologic outcome. (Source: Critical Care Medicine)

Low Tidal Volume Ventilation for Emergency Department Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis on Practice Patterns and Clinical Impact*
OBJECTIVES: Data suggest that low tidal volume ventilation (LTVV) initiated in the emergency department (ED) has a positive impact on outcome. This systematic review and meta-analysis quantify the impact of ED-based LTVV on outcomes and ventilator settings in the ED and ICU. DATA SOURCES: We systematically reviewed MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, references, conferences, and ClinicalTrials.gov. STUDY SELECTION: Randomized and nonrandomized studies of mechanically ventilated ED adults were eligible. DATA EXTRACTION: Tw...

ICU Versus High-Dependency Care Unit for Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Nationwide Propensity Score-Matched Cohort Study
CONCLUSIONS: Critical care in the ICU compared with that in the HDU was not associated with reduced inhospital mortality among the entire cohort of patients with acute myocardial infarction but was associated with reduced inhospital mortality among the subsets of patients with Killip class IV, intubation, or mechanical circulatory support.

Patient-Centered Outcomes Following COVID-19: Frailty and Disability Transitions in Critical Care Survivors*
CONCLUSIONS: Frailty and disability were more frequent 90 days after hospital discharge compared with baseline in COVID-19 patients admitted to the ICU. Our results show that most COVID-19 critical care survivors transition to poorer health status, highlighting the importance of long-term medical follow-up for this population.

Sleep and Circadian Health of Critical COVID-19 Survivors 3 Months After Hospital Discharge
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the sleep and circadian rest-activity pattern of critical COVID-19 survivors 3 months after hospital discharge. DESIGN: Observational, prospective study. SETTING: Single-center study. PATIENTS: One hundred seventy-two consecutive COVID-19 survivors admitted to the ICU with acute respiratory distress syndrome. INTERVENTIONS: Seven days of actigraphy for sleep and circadian rest-activity pattern assessment; validated questionnaires; respiratory tests at the 3-month follow-up. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: The cohort included 172 patients, mostly males (67.4%) wi...
