Critical Care

Juris Medicus has board-certified physicians who are fellowship trained in critical care and neurocritical care.

Critical care is the specialized treatment and monitoring of patients whose conditions, injuries, or illnesses are life threatening. This type of care most commonly occurs in an intensive care unit (ICU), and most hospitals have different ICUs dedicated to certain diseases, organs, or age groups. Led by an intensivist, a specialist in caring for severely ill or injured patients, a coordinated team of physicians and other healthcare professionals may collectively provide 24-hour critical care for a single patient. Intensivists must have a comprehensive knowledge not only of conditions common among critically ill patients but also medical procedures, team leading and coordination, end-of-life decisions, advance directives, and appropriate communication with families of patients. After medical school, intensivists must complete a residency in one of a variety of specialties such as surgery, pediatrics, internal medicine, or pulmonary medicine as well as a fellowship in critical care medicine.
