The Journal of Cardiac Critical Care, affiliated to The Simulation Society, was conceptualized in the year 2017, when a group of like-minded clinicians and faculty members from different hospitals came together to bring out a journal that will be dedicated to the latest developments in the field of critical care in cardiac sciences. The goal of the journal since then has remained to bring for its readers the changing landscape in the field of critical care for patients with life-threatening cardiac situations, the developing modalities in the clinics and eventually try and influence best and efficient practices for young clinicians and students in this subject category.
The journal started with a bi-annual frequency and continued publishing two issues a year for the initial few years, but by its 5th Vol. last year in 2021, we had to increase the frequency to make the journal tri-annual, to accommodate the growing number of submissions from our enthusiastic author base. The journal had received due guidance from time to time from our mentors who include Prof. Randeep Guleria, Prof. Navin C Nanda, Dr(s) Yatin Mehta, HK Chopra, Kanchi Murlidhar and several others.
Most importantly, the journal is indebted to its authors who over the years have published excellent articles in the journal covering various engaging topics such as randomized trials exploring use of probiotics in prevention of ventilator associated pneumonia, or comparing complex observations of anesthetic agents and barbiturate in Patients Undergoing Elective Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery, to the risk of acute kidney injury development in patients with acute decompensated heart failure etc. Time to time the journal keeps bringing for its authors, engaging, and educative narrative as well as systematic reviews discussing topics such as, effect of Vitamin D supplementation on post-operative outcomes in cardiac surgery patients, hypercoagulation in infectious diseases, and the significance of nutrition support following cardiac surgery.
Continuing to serve the moto to bring educative and information content for its readers and aid researches to reach out to a global audience, the journal in its 7th Vol. now begins a new journey with Scientific Scholar as our publisher. Here, we aim at an efficient dissemination of our published content both digitally and in print, besides we enthusiastically shall put our candidacy for higher indexing status. In doing so, the journal remains deeply thankful for its editors, reviewers and most importantly toward its authors as expressed above and we hope that the journal will continue to receive competitive high-quality content. The journal’s new website is https://jcardcritcare.org/and the authors are encouraged to submit their articles at https://editorialassist.com/#/login/jccc from now onward, beginning January 2023.
This special issue on “ECMO reviews” encompasses many important topics on ECMO keeping the global ECMO scenario in mind. It includes a robust editorial from the ELSO stalwarts Rycus et al. and special review on alternatives to heparin, that is, bivalrudin on ECMO. Enjoy the ECMO reviews reading.
Together we shall succeed ahead. We all at Journal of Cardiac Critical Care now look forward toward a brighter and promising future.
