www.propofology.com 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! The 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.
