Critical care doctors treat persons who face severe illness or injury. They most often care for patients in a hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU).
Life-threatening conditions -- such as heart attack and stroke; severe breathing problems and injuries -- require immediate and ongoing medical attention. Critical care can occur at the scene of an accident or in an emergency room. But it is most often given in a hospital's intensive care unit (ICU).
