Abstract

Acidbase.org has been serving the critical care community for over a decade. The backbone of this online resource consists of Peter Stewart’s original text “How to understand Acid-Base” which is freely available to everyone. In addition, Stewart’s Textbook of Acid Base, which puts the theory in today’s clinical context is available for purchase from the website. However, many intensivists use acidbase.org on a daily basis for its educational content and in particular for its analysis module. This review provides an overview of the history of the website, a tutorial and descriptive statistics of over 10,000 queries submitted to the analysis module.
