This official Critical Care Societies Collaborative statement was jointly developed by members of 4 major US professional and scientific societies and was published simultaneously in the July 1, 2016, issue of the American Journal of Critical Care and the July 2016 issues of American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, CHEST, and Critical Care Medicine.
