Abstract Hypovolemia is frequent in patients with sepsis and may contribute to worse outcome. The management of these patients is impeded by the low quality of the evidence for many of the specific components of the care. In this paper, we discuss recent advances and controversies in this field and give expert statements for the management of hypovolemia in patients with sepsis including triggers and targets for fluid therapy and volumes and types of fluid to be given. Finally, we point to… 

Current Controversies in Sepsis Management.

TLDR
Five current points of controversy in the management of sepsis and septic shock are addressed, including optimal timing of antibiotics in patients with potential sepsic shock, the role of glucocorticoids in septicshock, vitamin C as a novel therapy for sepsi, the ideal intravenous fluid for resuscitation, and the optimal balance of fluid resuscitation and vasopressor administration in septic shock.

Lower vs. higher fluid volumes in sepsis—protocol for a systematic review with meta‐analysis

TLDR
This work aims to assess patient‐important benefits and harms of lower vs. higher fluid volumes in resuscitation of adult patients with sepsis.

Conservative vs liberal fluid therapy in septic shock (CLASSIC) trial—Protocol and statistical analysis plan

TLDR
The protocol and detailed statistical analysis plan for the conservative versus liberal approach to fluid therapy of septic shock in the Intensive Care (CLASSIC) trial is described.

Progress in the Clinical Assessment and Treatment of Myocardial Depression in Critically Ill Patient with Sepsis

TLDR
The clinical characteristics, methodological diagnosis, and symptomatic treatment of septic myocardial depression are summarized to provide a reference for the early identification and treatment of patients with sepsis and myocardIAL depression.

Fluids in Sepsis and Septic Shock (FISSH): protocol for a pilot randomised controlled trial

TLDR
This pilot trial will test the feasibility of conducting the main trial, which will examine the effect of high versus low chloride fluids in patients with septic shock on patient-important outcomes.

Phases of fluid management and the roles of human albumin solution in perioperative and critically ill patients

TLDR
Hyperoncotic human albumin solution facilitates restrictive fluid therapy and the effectiveness of deresuscitative measures, and Serum levels of albumin relative to C-reactive protein and lactate may predict which patients will benefit most from albumin therapy.

Fluid administration for acute circulatory dysfunction using basic monitoring: narrative review and expert panel recommendations from an ESICM task force

TLDR
The expert panel found insufficient evidence to provide recommendations according to the GRADE system, and was only able to make recommendations for basic interventions, based on the available evidence and expert opinion.

Restricted fluid resuscitation in suspected sepsis associated hypotension (REFRESH): a pilot randomised controlled trial

TLDR
A regimen of restricted fluids and early vasopressor in ED patients with suspected sepsis and hypotension appears feasible, and a future trial is necessary with recruitment of high-risk patients to determine effects on clinical outcomes in this setting.

Sepsis associated acute kidney injury

TLDR
A growing body of knowledge has illuminated the clinical risk factors, pathobiology, response to treatment, and elements of renal recovery that have advanced the authors' ability to prevent, detect, and treat SA-AKI.

Relationship Between Initial Urine Output and Mortality in Patients Hospitalized in Cardiovascular Intensive Care Units: More Is Not Better

TLDR
The decreased and increased UO both were significantly associated with short-term mortality, and the relationship between UO and mortality was U-shape rather than linear.

Lower vs. higher fluid volumes in sepsis—protocol for a systematic review with meta‐analysis

TLDR
This work aims to assess patient‐important benefits and harms of lower vs. higher fluid volumes in resuscitation of adult patients with sepsis.

Does this critically ill patient with oliguria need more fluids, a vasopressor, or neither?

Introduction Oliguria is often viewed as an alarming sign of renal “hypoperfusion”. It frequently triggers hemodynamic interventions such as fluid and vasopressor therapy with the aim of improving

Sepsis: frontiers in diagnosis, resuscitation and antibiotic therapy

TLDR
In this narrative review, invited experts describe the expected challenges and progress to be made in the near future on diagnosis, resuscitation and infection (antibiotics and infection biomarkers), as these areas are key if initial management and subsequent outcomes are to be improved in patients with sepsis.

Mortality after Fluid Bolus in African Children with Severe Infection

TLDR
In a large group of critically ill African children, fluid boluses significantly increased 48-hour mortality and do not support the routine use of bolus resuscitation in severely ill febrile children with impaired perfusion in African hospitals.

Fixed minimum volume resuscitation: Pro

TLDR
Fluid resuscitation might result in different outcomes in the presence of malaria and severe anemia and could have contributed to the increased mortality in the fluids arms as patients randomized to the control group received blood transfusions while in these groups patients were receiving fluid bolus.

Fluid challenges in intensive care: the FENICE study

TLDR
An observational study conducted in ICUs around the world to evaluate how physicians conduct FCs in terms of type, volume, and rate of given fluid and to compare the proportion of patients receiving further fluid administration based on the response to the FC.

Fluid type and the use of renal replacement therapy in sepsis: a systematic review and network meta-analysis

TLDR
Among the patients with sepsis, fluid resuscitation with crystalloids compared to starch resulted in reduced use of RRT; the same may be true for albumin versus starch.

Sepsis: frontiers in supportive care, organisation and research

TLDR
Supportive care, organisational themes, clinical research and clinical research are focused on as key areas to improving the care and outcomes of patients with sepsis.

Effects of fluid restriction on measures of circulatory efficacy in adults with septic shock

The haemodynamic consequences of fluid resuscitation in septic shock have not been fully elucidated. Therefore, we assessed circulatory effects in the first 24 h of restriction of resuscitation fluid

The intensive care medicine research agenda on septic shock

TLDR
In this review, international experts summarize the current position of clinical research in septic shock and propose a research agenda to advance this field.
