Critical Care Anesthesia
What is critical care anesthesia?
Critical care is a medical term referencing the treatment of patients with life threatening illnesses. Also known as intensive care (ICU), patients in critical care units require constant monitoring and specialized care. Physicians that specialize in critical care medicine must be able to manage acute respiratory, cardiovascular, metabolic, cerebral, and renal problems in a wide range of patients ranging from infants to older adults. They must also manage multiple organ failures, life threatening diseases and disorders that fall into many specialties.
