Critical care or Intensive care is a crucial medical specialty caring for critically ill patients. They may require support for instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (ventilator support), acute renal failure, cardiac arrhythmias, or the cumulative effects of multiple organ failure, more commonly referred to now as multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Patients needing intensive/invasive monitoring, such as in the crucial hours after major surgery or patients who are considered too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit may also be placed in the intensive care units.
