Featured article: Glycocalyx (GCX) in clinical pathologies
The GCX is a constituent of the endothelial surface layer, which reduces the access of cellular components of the blood to the endothelium. The GCX contributes to various functions including signal sensing and transmission to the endothelium. Read the article here.
Featured article: light irradiation for CO poisoning
The authors conducted a study to determine and compare rates of COHb dissociation achieved in human in vitro blood samples under light radiation emitted at three levels of illuminance. The results showed that photodissociation of COHb in in vitro human blood samples by light irradiation.

Journal of Intensive Care is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Intensive Care Medicine (JSICM).
The publication costs for Journal of Intensive Care are currently covered by JSICM, therefore no fees will be charged to authors whose articles are accepted for publication in the journal.
In this thematic series, the authors review various clinical studies on point-of-care ultrasound, which were carried out based on the ideas of “extraction”, “creation” and “integration”.
Organ dysfunction in sepsis
In this thematic series, the authors review the pathophysiology of organ dysfunction in sepsis. The role of two main pathomechanisms of organ dysfunction, DIC and endothelial cell dysfunction, are also discussed.
In this review series, the role of monitoring is highlighted to guide the treatment and therapeutic intervention tailored for the pathophysiologic degree of brain injury.
In this review series, the principal and practical matters underlying fluid therapy are highlighted to allow intensivists around the world to better understand and manage such primary and consistent intervention as fluid therapy in critically ill patients.
