New collection: Tissue oxygenation: how to measure, how much to target
Hemodynamic management ultimately aims to restore oxygen availability in the tissue. Some hemodynamic variables, both on a macrohemodynamic and a microcirculatory scale, remain difficult to obtain in a clinical setting, and in many instances, more research is needed to determine their relevance in a physiologic context and evaluate individualized targets. This thematic collection aims at bringing together translational and basic original research and reviews on the subject.Read More
New Collection : Blood purification in sepsis: from bench to bedside
The idea of extracorporeal blood purification (aside from classical renal replacement therapy) to eliminate injurious mediators of the sepsis syndrome has received increasing interest over the last years. In fact, blood purification techniques, such as hemoadsorption, are already widely used in clinical practice due to its plausible theoretical rationale, despite lack of clear evidence. Moreover, some recent studies have raised important risk-benefit concerns underlining the fundamental need of further research in this field. This thematic collection invites authors to focus on both pre-clinical and clinical approaches to explore future perspectives of blood purification in the additive treatment of sepsis. The aim is not only to contribute to an improved understanding of the molecular mechanisms influenced by blood purification but also to set the stage for taking the next steps to improve the clinical management.Read More

Aims and scope
ICMx aims at publishing research aspiring to: 1) advance understanding of critical illness pathophysiology, 2) support or enhance clinical trial design, 3) test experimental novel treatment interventions, 4) develop or refine experimental models that are relevant to critical care and acute physiologic derangements.
ICMx welcomes original studies, reviews, hypothesis papers and state-of-the-art methodology papers. We also encourage correspondence pertinent to the works published in ICMx. Editorial comments will be solicited.
- ICMx is the official journal of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine that is dedicated to translational research
- ICMx is one of few journals publishing research constructing the pipeline of novel discoveries that can advance critical care
- The board of ICMx represents physiologists, basic scientists dedicated to ICU medicine and ICU physicians, providing for an ideal platform to bring discoveries to clinical applications in critical care
