Critical Care Medicine

Critical care treatment takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU) in a hospital. Patients may have a serious illness or injury. In the ICU, patients get round-the-clock care by a specially trained team.Critical care is appropriate for hospital patients of every age who are severely ill. Patients may go to the ICU from the Emergency Department, or may move there from the general hospital ward if they become critically ill. Examples of patients who need critical care includes those who undergo very invasive surgery or who have poor outcomes after surgery, those who are severely injured in an accident, people with serious infections, or people who have trouble breathing on their own and require a ventilator to breathe for them. Here are some common conditions that require critical care:

  • Heart problems
  • Lung problems
  • Organ failure
  • Brain trauma
  • Blood infections (sepsis)
  • Drug-resistant infections
  • Serious injury (car crash, burns)

  • ICU
  • Ventilator
  • Invasive surgery
