Over the years , critical care has emerged as crucial and indispensable clinical speciality in the field of medical care. Critical care caters to seriously ill patient population , who require life/organ support in the form of ventilator in cases of respiratory compromise,dialysis for kidney failure,drug support and intensive monitoring in haemodynamically unstable patients etc.

Patients who are not stable are to be treated in icu. Instability can be in the form of low/ high blood pressure, breathlessness, excessive drowsiness etc.

Patients having heart attack, stroke (paralysis), convulsions, severe infection, kidney failure,pneumonia, asthma exacerbation need monitoring and care in icu, also post -surgical patients who have undergone major surgery or having serious co-morbidities.

Heart rate and rhythm, BP (non-invasive and invasive), oxygen saturation, urine output, neuro-observation, central venous pressure, cardiac output etc.

Patient is put on the ventilator when he/she is not able to maintain the oxygenation, is in respiratory distress, not in proper conscious state to protect the airway or prone for aspiration, post major surgeries patient may need elective ventilatory support.

Patient is weaned from the ventilator after resolution of the primary problem and he/she is conscious, able to protect the airway alongwith improvement in breathing.
