Resus.ME exists to help you keep up to date in all aspects of life-saving medicine, from acute medicine and paediatrics, to emergency and critical care medicine, and even pre-hospital care!
I believe we have a responsibility to stay at the cutting edge of resuscitation, and I want to share what I learn. No more relying on what you learned in Advanced Life Support Courses! This is for the specialist in resuscitation.
Over 40 journals as well as sources of national and international guidelines are scanned as they appear to make sure you don’t miss out on what you need to know to save lives!
The Top Tips section is a good place to start, otherwise check out a few select posts from the last month or two to get a taste of what Resus.ME has to offer:

I could go on, but by now you get the picture — the site is an awesome way to keep up with the latest and greatest in resuscitation medicine. By the way, if you don’t know who Cliff is, I think his twitter profile says it all:
Resus.ME is essential reading for the critical care health professional, regardless of the phase of care you work in: prehospital, the ED or the ICU. Highly, highly recommended.
