Pulmonology & Critical Care
Air is the 'life-force' of all living beings
People with life-threatening injuries and illnesses need critical care. Critical care involves close, constant attention by a team of specially-trained health professionals. It usually takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU) or trauma centre. Problems that might need critical care treatment include the following:
- Complications from surgery
- Accidents, heart attack
- Stroke, infections
- Severe breathing problems
- Premature birth
- Drug reaction
- Gunshot or stabbing wounds
- A fall, burns
- Drug overdose
