A Plethora of solutions to all your questions and dilemmas, melt away any confusion or doubts you may have

Any illness that puts one's life in danger demands urgent attention. The causes of critical disease include poisoning, surgical issues, and early birth, to name a few. Critical illness includes conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves that connect the brain to the arms, legs, and other organs. It also includes conditions that affect the heart, all blood vessels that carry blood to the body, lungs, kidneys, mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines, and other parts of the body.

Critical care is the long-term treatment of people who have a life-threatening illness. Emergency medicine is the treatment of those individuals in the short term; it is also the treatment of people who have minor injuries (for example, sprained ankle, broken arm).

A ventilator, often known as a respirator, is a device that helps people breathe by supplying oxygen directly into their lungs through a plastic breathing tube (endotracheal tube or a tracheostomy).

It is a specialized area of the hospital where the emphasis is on intensive monitoring and treatment with additional staff and resources, this allows for faster response to emergency situations. The qualified nurses and doctors, with the assistance of a multidisciplinary team, ensure that the critical patient recovers quickly and returns home to their family.

Trained in critical care medicine upon completion of an Anaesthesia, medicine, and pulmonary medicine. Intensivists make major decisions after consulting with main and referral consultants. Daily family meetings are held to inform patient attendants on the patient's health status and treatment plan. The Intensivist is the Unit's senior leader, and the other healthcare professionals collaborate with him.
