Septic shock – Advances in diagnosis and treatment. JAMA August 2015.

This is a systematic review of the literature with evidence based guidelines for management of septic shock. Interesting advances include focused ultrasonography to manage complicating physiology (eg hypovolaemia or cardiogenic shock), hydroxyethyl starch may cause harm and protocolised early goal-directed therapy is not superior to usual care in early septic shock.
