Intensive-care medicine or critical-care medicine is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life threatening conditions requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring.
Patients with severe but potentially reversible problems are the most appropriate members for critical care unit, rather than those with chronic terminal illness. The chief advantage of CCU is provision of better, timely and organized care.
