Critical Care Medicine

Critical Care Medicine



The Critical Care integrate many specialities and diverse technologies, offering the possibility of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. They are designed and managed based on the fact that methodical organisation of Critical Care services influences important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates. A lot of emphasis is also placed on areas like nurses' training, standardizing care through clinical pathways and the identification of ethical and economic issues pertaining to Critical Care.

Intensive care medicine or critical care medicine is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring.

Patients requiring intensive care may require support for instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, or the cumulative effects of multiple organ failure, more commonly referred to now as multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. They may also be admitted for intensive/invasive monitoring, such as the crucial hours after major surgery when deemed too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit.
