Critical Care Committee Article Review
The AAST’s Critical Care Committee has begun a new activity: the AAST Critical Care Committee Article Review, which will take place several times throughout the year. This effort, which is led by Drs. Ron Simon and Sonlee West, is a brief review of a recent important article relevant to surgical critical care that has been reviewed and approved by the AAST Critical Care Committee. The review of the article will be available on AAST’s web page for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
The first and second reviews, “Hydrocortisone, Vitamin C, and Thiamine for the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: A Retrospective Before-After Study” by Paul E. Marik, et al. (done by Dr. Ron Simon) and “Early Propranolol After Traumatic Brain Injury is Associated with Lower Mortality” by Ara Ko, et al. (done by Dr. Sonlee West), respectively, are currently on the website. They can be accessed by going to AAST.org, clicking on the “Education” tab, then “e-Learning/CME”, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking “View Courses,” and filtering by the “Critical Care Journal Review” course type.

On behalf of the AAST Critical Care Committee and researchers at Oregon Health & Science University, we have designed a brief survey investigating the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) at trauma centers.
We would appreciate your taking five minutes to complete this survey, as your participation is essential to understanding emerging ECMO needs at trauma centers.
To thank you for your time, you will be eligible to receive a $100 Amazon gift card for completing the survey.
