Critical care medicine is often practiced in the ICU

Critical care medicine is a medical sub-specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of life threatening conditions requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring for critically ill patients. Critical care medicine encompasses treatment in a broad range of conditions, requiring knowledge from internal medicine and/or emergency medicine.
