Welcome to the ATS Critical Care website. We are excited to provide easy access to usable critical care resources. This site has been reorganized and new educational material added. We hope you find this to be a useful tool at the bedside, on rounds and in the lab.
The majority of American Thoracic Society members matriculate from fellowship programs in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Critical care medicine makes up about half of the clinical activities of these members and is, therefore, a major concern of our society. Non-member intensivists and other specialists are drawn to our society because of its leadership in critical care medicine. The Critical Care section of the ATS website was established both to acknowledge the importance of critical care medicine to our society and to coordinate the ATS’s activity in this area. The Critical Care area of the ATS website contains programs developed by the Critical Care assembly. Just as importantly, we invite submissions from individuals to publish here. Interactive educational materials such as critical care case presentations and reviews of recent critical care journal articles are especially sought. Work submitted will be peer reviewed before being posted on the site (just as if submitted to print journals). Thank you.
