Emergency and Critical Care Medicine

Emergency medicine is the medical specialty concerned with caring for undifferentiated, unscheduled patients with illnesses or injuries requiring immediate medical attention. Emergency physicians generally practice in hospital emergency departments, pre-hospital settings via emergency medical services, and intensive care units, but may also work in primary care settings such as urgent care clinics. Critical care helps people with life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Critical care usually takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU) or trauma center. Critical care specialist has trained to take care of serious medical conditions and health issues. They often work hand in hand with surgical specialist as well. For example, Liver transplant patients require transplant surgeons as well as critical care specialist to monitor and treat renal, liver, and other bodily functions both prior to and after the transplantation. Neurologist work with neurosurgeons, as cardiologists consult and take care of cardiothoracic surgical patients.
