Simulation Versus Interactive Mobile Learning for Teaching Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation to Clinicians: A Randomized Trial
CONCLUSIONS: Simulation was superior to QuizTime and experiential learning with regard to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation knowledge acquisition. Further studies are needed to ascertain the effect of these interventions on knowledge retention, clinical performance, and patient outcomes. (Source: Critical Care Medicine)

Beyond the Alveolar Epithelium: Plasma Soluble Receptor for Advanced Glycation End Products Is Associated With Oxygenation Impairment, Mortality, and Extrapulmonary Organ Failure in Children With Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
OBJECTIVES: Soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products is a known plasma marker of alveolar epithelial injury. However, RAGE is also expressed on cell types beyond the lung, and its activation leads to up-regulation of pro-inflammatory mediators. We sought to examine the relationship between plasma soluble receptor for advanced glycation end products and primary pulmonary dysfunction, extrapulmonary organ dysfunction, and mortality in pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome patients at two early time points following acute respiratory distress syndrome diagnosis and compare these results to plasma surfa...

Ventilator-Associated Lower Respiratory Tract Bacterial Infections in COVID-19 Compared With Non-COVID-19 Patients*
OBJECTIVES: Ventilator-associated lower respiratory tract infections (VA-LRTIs) are associated with prolonged length of stay and increased mortality. We aimed to investigate the occurrence of bacterial VA-LRTI among mechanically ventilated COVID-19 patients and compare these findings to non-COVID-19 cohorts throughout the first and second wave of the pandemic. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. PATIENTS: All patients greater than or equal to 18 years treated with mechanical ventilation between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2020. IN...
