Welcome

Welcome to Cochrane Emergency and Critical Care (EC)

We are part of Cochrane which is an international not-for-profit independent organization, dedicated to making up-to date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. We produce and disseminate systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials, diagnostic and prognostic studies in  many potentially life-threatening conditions, including non-trauma resuscitation. This encompasses the care of critically ill people in intensive care units, hospital emergency departments, and those treated by pre-hospital emergency medical services (apart from those who have been injured). Our full scope will be found here.

We are a multi-disciplinary, international Group. We are based in Herlev Hospital Denmark. Our Co-ordinating Editor, Prof Harald Herkner, is based at the Medical University Vienna,  Austria.
