Intensive Care Unit

An intensive care physician (or intensivist) is a doctor who specialises in caring for critically ill patients. Intensive care physicians work within intensive care units, which generally operate in major hosptials with access to all types of bedside, laboratory, radiology and other investigative departments.


What Does an Intensive Care Physician Do?

An intensive care physician treats patients who have any medical or surgical illness or operation that requires critical care support – generally life threatening major illnesses or operations where high level life support is required.
