Critical care medicine is now a recognized Super Specialty by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the practitioners are called “Intensivists who provide dedicated and continuous care to critically ill patients who require advanced monitoring and care in the Intensive Care Unit setting. They work closely with all other specialists in the hospital.
