Intensive care is a healthcare specialty that looks after critical patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury. Typical examples of critical illness include heart attack, poisoning, pneumonia, surgical complications, premature birth and stroke. Critical care also includes care of the severely injured; whether due to an automobile accident, gunshot or stabbing wounds, a fall, burns, or an industrial accident.
Intensive care may be provided anywhere life is threatened i.e. at the scene of an accident, in an ambulance, in a hospital emergency room or in the operating room. Most critical care is delivered in highly specialized intensive care units (ICU). Intensive care is provided by teams of well trained and experienced intensivists, supported by other healthcare professionals that lead to the best outcome for the patient.
