Senior Editor and CCN Founder
Dr Jonny Wilkinson
Consultant in ICU and Anaesthesia
Main interests…#FOAMed / Research / ITU / Medical emergencies / ECHO and clearly, blogging!
Hopefully this site should provide a very useful #FOAMed / #FOAMcc / #POCUS resource for anyone interested in all that is critical care! Most blog topics are written by me and constitute my opinions only, they are NOT the opinions of Northampton General Hospital itself.
There are downloadable resources, how-to guides and many more things to keep you out of trouble.
Please note that the videos are links to some very hard work done by some amazing colleagues, direct from Youtube. They are not my work, but I wanted them on the site as they summarise things so beautifully. Please visit them and their sites.
If you would like to contribute to this site, whoever you are and whatever grade you are, please email me:
We are an ever growing team and I am proud to have the following Section Editors involved with me:

Senior Regional Anaesthesia Editor
Dr Mahadevappa Lohit (Consultant in Anaesthesia)
