Critical care medicine is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions that require emergency care for the critically ill and also those patients who need special monitoring and treatment. It is also called the Intensive care unit. We provide a multidisciplinary approach to the critically ill patients by examining the health condition and providing world-class treatment.

Critical care or intensive care is the medicine that focuses on special care and treatment for critically ill patients or for those patients that require immediate treatment.

Critical care medicine specialists are known as intensivists, they are doctors who specialize in patient care in intensive care units (ICU).
