About Critical Care Physicians

Critical care specialists, or intensivists, are the doctors you go to see if something is seriously wrong. Critical care medicine is the diagnosis and/or treatment of the wide variety of clinical problems that arise with the extremes of human disease. Patients who are critically ill are treated by a team of professionals trained to deal with organ shutdown and respiratory or cardiac arrest. The intensivist may either be the head of the critical care team or may act as a consultant.

Successful critical care doctor careers entail ongoing education about the many conditions that arise with the critically ill, as well as the equipment used to treat those conditions. On top of that, the intensivist must also be aware of the many ethical and social issues that come with treating critically ill patients:

  • End-of-life Decisions
  • Advance Directives
  • Estimating Prognosis
  • Counseling Patients and Their Families

Critical care jobs entail a fast paced medical treatment environment. Thus, they need to have knowledge, skill, and extensive experience in the following medical and procedural skills:

  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support
  • Arterial Blood Gas Sampling and Interpretation
  • Bedside Pulmonary Function
  • Mechanical Ventilation
  • Placement of Arterial and Central Venous Lines
  • Insertion of Temporary Pacemaker
  • Endotracheal Intubation
  • Placement of Pulmonary Artery Catheter
  • Interpretation of Waveforms

After four years of both undergraduate and med school, a future intensivist or critical care specialist must complete a three to five year residency and become board certified in one of the following; surgery, internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, or pediatrics.
