About Open Critical Care
OpenCriticalCare.org (beta) was launched in August 2020 as a repository for reliable, open-access critical care learning tools with relevance to resource-variable settings. In response to COVID-19, we have built an open-access Resource Library of critical care educational resources for medical educators and learners as well as a COVID19 Guidelines Dashboard, and Oxygen Calculator. The library includes compiled and original content that can be used for training at various levels and multiple healthcare cadres, and are suited for independent learning and as well as integration into institutional training programs and curricula.
