The Annals of Critical Care (the original name “Intensive Care Herald”) was founded by intensive care experts A.I. Saltanov, E.S. Gorobets, A.Yu. Kolomiiskii, A.A. Sovetov, and L.E. Tsypin. Prof. V.N. Semenov, correspondent member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, promoted the creation of the journal. The reason behind this action was the desire to create a periodical with practical guide to intensive care that has been recently practised in virtually all branches of clinical medicine.

The editorial board of Intensive Care Herald was set up in the end of 1991 and included A.I. Saltanov, Editor-in-Chief, and I.A. Makarcheva, Managing Editor. Invaluable benefit, from the point of view of readers, was the authority of famous scientists who systematically sent their articles to the journal – A.P. Zilber, V.N. Semenov, A.I. Levshankov et al.

In 2018 the journal changed its name to Alexander Saltanov Intensive Care Herald, after his untimely death.

The journal is registered at the Federal Service for Supervision of Mass Media and Protection of Cultural Heritage.

Starting July 1, 2019, the journal Annals of Critical Care was included in the LIST of peer-reviewed scientific publications in which the main scientific results of dissertations for the degree of candidate of science, for the degree of doctor of science should be published.

About the Publishing House

The Publishing House Prakticheskaya Meditsina (Practical Medicine) was founded in 2004 as a joint project of healthcare professionals and specialists in the field of publishing. Our aim is to publish high-quality books quickly and inexpensively.

Errors made in medical books can lead to other, more serious mistakes, namely, medical errors. This fact imposes a greater responsibility on publishers, therefore, each book published by the Publishing House underwent obligatory scientific editing and proofreading. Subsequent stages include technical editing, individual layout design, and monitoring of the printing process at all its stages.

Over recent years, we have developed into a Publishing House that works in several areas: books, journals, and translation of foreign books and journals. Our stand has been exposed in the largest book fairs in London and Frankfurt.

We are always open to effective cooperation and we will be glad to see highly qualified professionals among our authors.
