Critical Care Reviews is a free, not-for-profit, educational critical care resource run by Rob Mac Sweeney, an intensivist in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The site offers many resources, including a journal watch facility, weekly newsletter, the largest structured collection of accessible critical care review articles on the internet, links to major studies and guidelines, as well as links to free vodcasts, podcasts, and a vast array of journals, societies, groups and websites.

In addition to the content on the site, Critical Care Reviews hosts an annual meeting in January, discussing the major studies of the previous year. Take a look around the site, it's one of the most comprehensive free critical care resources available.
Dr John Hinds (1980 - 2015)
Critical Care Reviews has been offline for the past week as a mark of respect for my friend and colleague Dr John Hinds. He was an incredibly gifted doctor and the most natural presenter I have heard. John will be missed by all who knew him, and many who did not, but were inspired by his talks. Our lives are short, occasionally tragically shorter than expected. This is a fitting moment to remember, during our busy, pressurised lives, to take time to stop and smell the flowers. Accordingly, I've altered the website to reflect the beauty of the world we live in. Perhaps, when you see some of these images, you be reminded of "our humble genius".
