Promoting Open Access to Scientific Advancement

We believe everyone should have access to scientific advances which improve outcomes in critical illness. We work towards this goal by sharing the latest knowledge via our website, weekly newsletter, podcast, annual book and meeting.

Everything is freely available, for everyone, everytime. We don't paywall any aspect of our work.

If you value the work that we do, please consider supporting us so we can help clinicians worldwide implement the latest, most robust evidence to help their patients.

New Look

COVID-19 has changed the world, so Critical Care Reviews is changing too

As the pandemic has evolved, the volume of published articles has increased dramatically. To better highlight the most important and interesting articles, we've changed the look of the website and refocused on our main area of interest - critical care trials. We'll still cover the entire spectrum of the literature in our journal watch, but trial reports will take precedence. It will take a few months to repopulate the site, so please be patient.

The new site will be slicker and more streamlined, as well as more visually atractive. All the usual popular features will be maintained, such as journal watch, newsletters, podcasts, books and meeting materials.

Critical Care Reviews will continue to be the website to use to stay up-to-date with the latest literature. I hope you enjoy the new look and refocus.

New Partnership with My Intensive Care

Rob Mac Sweeney

Founder, Critical Care Reviews

We are excited to announce a partnership between Critical Care Reviews and My Intensive Care, a new digital management platform for intensive care units. Declan Kelly and his team have created a flagship resource for clinicians, departments and hospitals worldwide to collaborate in a global critical care community sharing knowledge, skills and means. We share the same values of seeking to disseminate the latest evidence in our speciality and promoting the highest standards of clinical practice.

Since our beginning in 2009, despite operating as enthusiastic amateurs, Critical Care Reviews has risen to become a significant international contributer to the discussion and dissemination of the latest science in critical care medicine. This partnership marks the next step in our journey towards achieving a stable, professional basis for our wide ranging activities. We remain committed to promoting open access to scientific advancement and this partnership will support us in this goal.
