Welcome to The Bottom Line (TBL). This site has been built to create a compendium of all the landmark papers which are shaping the way we manage our critically ill patients. Each paper has been summarised and critiqued using a standard template and ends with a 'bottom line' paragraph to allow a quick reminder of the key points. The papers are reviewed and cross checked by the editorial group. We take this seriously and spend time getting it accurate and as helpful for our readers as possible. If you think we have got it wrong, please let us know or use it as a discussion in the comments section. The main value of this site is the discussion of these papers and the contribution of the global FOAM community. We hope you enjoy!
