Robert C. Tasker, MA, MBBS, MD, FRCP, FRCPCH: Welcome. 2024. Great year. Thank you to all our authors from 2023. It's been a real privilege to handle your material and it's a major achievement to be published in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. It's our 25th anniversary year this year, 25 volumes. What a great way to start this. We've got a double issue. Both the January and February issues will be coming out this month. I can't tell you too much about the February issue because that's going to be released at the SCCM meeting in Phoenix this year. Hope to see you there. So first, the January issue. We have three Editor's Choices. A secondary analysis of in hospital cardiac arrest by Federman et al. This is a 2016 to 2021 ICU resuscitation database study over 1,100 patients and outcome by diagnostic grouping. Our new cardiac Senior Associate Editor Ravi Thiagarajan has written the editorial. The second highlight is about Prostacyclin Analog in CRRT in liver patients by Deep et al, single center 10-year study, 2010 to 2019, 96 patients over 350 filters. The third is a PROSPERO systematic review by Walker et al on fluid responsiveness in shock and what measurements we should be making. The PCCM Connections picks up the dataset research on in hospital cardiac arrest with a review of the get with the guidelines papers we've published, the ICU-RESUS papers and the pediRES-Q. So that takes us to February. As I mentioned, do come and talk to me at the SCCM meeting. I'd be pleased to chat about anything. This is a special issue. We start off with a special statement about chatGPT. Then there are three late breakers. I'm not going to tell you about those but do attend the late breaking session. The PCCM Connections draws together this material. So, all in all a wonderful two issues and once again, thank you so much to all of our authors. You're doing great stuff and I'd love to see more. Best regards.
