Aarti Sarwal, MD, FAAN, FNCS, FCCM: Hello, I'm Aarti Sarwal, the Social Media Editor of Critical Care Medicine. Here are my top reads from the August issue of CCM. This issue has several articles that cover critical care research related to COVID-19. Rafphael Weiss and group report on their investigation on the role of two urinary biomarkers for predicting acute kidney injury in COVID-19 patients. The COVID-19 Critical Care Consortium reports on the cerebrovascular complications specific to COVID-19 related VV-ECMO. Lastly, a disturbing article by Piscitello and the group uncovering disparities in the use of unilateral DNR orders during the pandemic. Do not miss the foreword by Gabriel Wardi and the group. As ChatGPT and DALL-E take over the world, predictive algorithms in sepsis have become a quotable example of the scuffle between AI, machine learning and medicine. We just can't find the right way to translate this into bedside care. The authors provide their perspective on what will it take to bring the promise of artificial intelligence to the ICU. For more articles, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Please be safe and well. Goodbye.
