We are delighted that the first edition of Critical Illness is launching on MedicinesComplete. The vision of a dynamic evidenced-based guide to drugs in critical illness has evolved from an idea into an extensive collaboration with colleagues and friends from over the UK and the international critical care community. It has been our pleasure to work alongside colleagues at Pharmaceutical Press and special thank you to the editors and expert contributors, it would not have been possible without you.
