Fundamental Critical Care Support: Resource Limited (FCCS: RL) is designed for healthcare professionals who may encounter critically ill or injured patients in resource-limited environments.

FCCS: RL addresses the unique challenges faced when resources are limited and the impact these limitations have on providing critical care. It focuses on a minimum-better-best paradigm for identifying, monitoring, and treatment strategies in the setting of austerity or resource limitation.

FCCS: RL is available as a licensed course in a live, site-hosted format for institutions to provide training their clinicians. For individuals seeking self-study options, the textbook is available for individual purchase as well as the option to search for a course scheduled nearby.
