www.icupearls.org is a non-profit educational project created to impart the knowledge of intensive care medicine across the globe which is accessible to all. The project is called "A Critical Care a Day" with the objective to upload one pearl daily related to intensive care medicine.
The website incorporates different sub-specialities that are related to intensive care medicine under one banner. This site also provides extensive resources for everyday bedside clinical practice and can be useful to prepare for examinations as well.
This project was started in September, 2005 and over the last 12 years, more than 3200 pearls related to critical care medicine have been published. Evaluating the web traffic, we have found that this is an enormous source of education to all critical care related personnel, particularly in third world countries.
The first 10 years of pearls are available in digital format or an e-book and can be downloaded from this website using the download tab. There is also an e-book available from Amazon.com for $0.99.

Please feel free to be a part of this project, new contributors are always welcome. Our goal is to provide this knowledge that may not be easily accessible or available for critical care providers world-wide. This resource acts as an educational piece and is benefecial for its users, as well as its collaborators.
