Critical Care Medicine (CCM) is a specialty that involves the management of patients with life threatening, frequently complex, medical and surgical illnesses in a specialized unit named Intensive Care Unit (ICU) or Critical Care Unit(CCU).
A modern ICU/CCU represents the pinnacle of any hospital’s approach to highly technological & sophisticated in-patient care. The CCM physician also called an Intensivist in some parts of the world, has expertise in the evaluation and management of these critically ill patients.
These critically ill patients may have dysfunction or failure of one or more vital organ systems. In the ICU procedures used to support and identify the cause of the critical illness include endotracheal intubation, central venous catheterization, arterial cannulation, pulmonary artery catheterization, bronchoscopy, lumbar puncture, thoracocentesis, paracentesis, chest tube thoracostomy, percutaneous tracheostomy, etc. Specialists from anesthesiology, general medicine, or pulmonology can undergo further training in critical care medicine to become CCM physicians.
The Critical Care Department offers round-the-clock continuous care to patients in potentially life-threatening conditions, requiring a life support system and other intensive medical interventions.
