Critical care medicine is the healthcare specialty that cares for patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury. This care is delivered in highly specialized intensive care units (ICUs) and trauma centers. Multidisciplinary teams of highly experienced physicians, nurses, respiratory care technicians, pharmacists, dieticians and other allied health professionals provide comprehensive care for these critically ill patients. This team uses their unique expertise, ability to interpret important therapeutic information, access to highly sophisticated equipment, and the services of support personnel to provide care that leads to the best outcome for the patient. Patients are rarely admitted directly to the critical care unit. They are usually admitted from the emergency room, operating room or hospital rooms where they are first given care and stabilized. The continuum of critical care begins at the moment of illness or injury and continues throughout the patient's hospitalization, treatment and subsequent recovery.
Typical examples of critical illness include heart attack, pneumonia, poisoning, complex or prolonged surgery, surgical complications, premature birth, and stroke. Critical care also includes trauma care - care of the severely injured – from any cause..
Critical care refers exclusively to the treatment of patients who suffer from life-threatening conditions. Emergency room physicians and nurses treat patients who suffer from relatively minor emergencies (sprained ankles, broken arms) to those with major problems including heart attack, knife or gunshot wounds or drug overdoses. In the Emergency Department, physicians and nurses stabilize patients and transfer them to the ICU for further treatment. The long-term management of critically ill and injured patients is provided by critical care professionals in the ICU.
An intensivist is a specialist physician with additional sub-specialty (fellowship) training, or equivalent qualifications, in critical care medicine. An intensivist directs the care of critically ill patients and works in collaboration with other health care professionals necessary for the care of patients in critical care units.
Mechanical ventilation is the method of using machines to help patients breathe when they are unable to breathe sufficiently on their own. Most often, mechanical ventilation is used for a few days or weeks to help a patient breathe during a serious illness. This type of breathing support is usually done in an intensive care unit.
