Critical Care Reviews

Promoting Open Access to Scientific Advancement

The ultimate aim of this site is to provide a single structured resource for accessing scientific advancement in the field of critical care. This is primarily provided via links to open access articles from across the entire medical literature. In addition to many mainstream journals providing open access to their published articles, either immediately or after a period of time, many journals less familiar to intensivists also publish freely available articles. In keeping with the modern development of open access journals, links to many of whom are provided, this website aims to enable visitors freely access important scientific advances within the speciality. Links to freely accessible podcasts and vodcasts, many from from major international meetings, are also available. Each week a specific topic is chosen for review and is displayed in "This Week's Papers".  A featured article on this topic is presented daily in the the "Paper of the Day" section and provides an easy way to stay up-to-date with current developments in critical care. In a similar manner, recent publications from the major journals are highlighted in the "Journal Watch" section and a newsletter containing the week's developments in critical care is emailed to all registered users weekly. All papers are handpicked from across the spectrum of medical and scientific literature and are available from the publisher without charge. These  articles can alternatively be accessed via  search engines such as Google Scholar or PubMed. Articles are not stored on this website and all traffic is directed to the journal's website from where files are accessed.  Due to the size of the critical care literature it will take a long time before most major topics are covered. If there are specific papers you wish to see added please email me and I can update the site accordingly. Similarly, if any broken links are found please let me know. Through the "Paper of the Day" facility, all areas of critical care will be focused upon in turn, enabling incomplete topics to be completed.

To facilitate the rapid adoption of clinical education into clinical practice in order to improve patient outcomes.

Global physicians and healthcare professionals have been participating in our digital activities for over 15 years to acquire new clinical skills, test their knowledge, and improve their practice of medicine.

We carefully design interactive activities to challenge and address the unmet educational needs of your peers within the medical community. All activities are delivered in multiple formats, which can be consumed quickly, at any time, from any place, and on any device on a proven platform which professionals trust.

PeerVoice is a provider of independent medical education developed in concert with leading experts from around the world. Some activities are also certified for continuing medical education (CME) credits by a European accrediting body.


Propofology is an UK based, international project created out of the desire to advance FOAMed (Free Open Access to Medical Education) to everyone involved in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine. The website focuses on delivering ‘infograms’, or small graphic tutorials on topics pertinent to these fields; aiming to distill complicated topics into short ‘bytes'. There are over one hundred infographics to peruse and learn from as well as a medical student section, opinion articles and signposts. There is also an expanding collection of YouTube videos, so be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel to keep up to date! ‚ÄčThe content is disseminated on Twitter to the #FOAMed network and is particularly useful not only for those practicing in anaesthesia and critical care, but also individuals revising for specialty and medical school examinations.



Social Media and Critical Care

SMACC is a FOAMed charity that promotes education and knowledge sharing in Critical Care. They also host an epic conference! SMACC (Social Media and Critical Care) is a health promotion charity. It is based on the philosophy of FOAM (Free Open Access Medical education – #FOAMed). The organising committee gives their time freely and receives no financial benefit. This in part explains the wonderful passions for philanthropy, sharing, education and innovation that make this critical care community so unique.

SMACC has seen spectacular growth since its humble beginnings. The Conference has grown from an enthusiastic idea into a global leader amongst critical care events. Whilst SMACC is primarily a high quality, academic meeting, the real reason behind this growth is the enormous and inspiring energy of the critical care community itself. SMACC crosses traditional hierarchies, professional barriers and international borders. It is a community that is centered on the pursuit of excellence in patient care and a passion for sharing this as widely as possible.

The Bottom Line

The Bottom Line

Stay tuned with the latest publications

Welcome to The Bottom Line (TBL). This site has been built to create a compendium of all the landmark papers which are shaping the way we manage our critically ill patients. Each paper has been summarised and critiqued using a standard template and ends with a 'bottom line' paragraph to allow a quick reminder of the key points. The papers are reviewed and cross checked by the editorial group. We take this seriously and spend time getting it accurate and as helpful for our readers as possible. If you think we have got it wrong, please let us know or use it as a discussion in the comments section. The main value of this site is the discussion of these papers and the contribution of the global FOAM community. We hope you enjoy!
