In this episode I mention the new ACCRAC mailing list which you can sign up for with the link right below the show description on the website accrac.libsyn.com. You can also post comments on the website and email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I also highlight Rob MacSweeney’s fantastic critical care site called criticalcarereviews.com and his newsletter which you can subscribe to on his site. The weekly newsletter includes the week’s top trials and papers in critical care.
