Since the introduction of the Internet to academic centers for routine communications, medical researchers and clinicians have used this media to disseminate information amongst their peers. This instantaneous method of knowledge exchange has improved patient care as documented in numerous publications during the past decade especially of those researchers/clinicians working in critical care medicine. A number of issues contribute to the need for rapid knowledge procurement in intensive care units.
