Critical care medicine is a medical specialty that involves the management of patients with severe and life-threatening illnesses or injuries. The following are some of the conditions that may require critical care:

Respiratory failure

This occurs when the respiratory system fails to provide sufficient oxygen to the body and remove carbon dioxide.

Cardiac arrest

This is a sudden stop in the heart’s ability to pump blood, which can lead to death if not treated promptly.


This is a serious condition that occurs when an infection spreads throughout the body, causing damage to the body’s organs and tissues.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)

This is a severe lung condition that occurs when fluid builds up in the lungs, making it difficult to breathe.


This is a serious medical condition that occurs when the body is not getting enough blood and oxygen, which can lead to organ failure and death.

Traumatic injury

This includes serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal cord injury, and crush injuries.


Severe burns can cause significant fluid loss and lead to serious infections, making intensive care necessary.

Neurological conditions

This includes conditions such as stroke, brain injury, and spinal cord injury.


This can occur from ingesting toxic substances and can cause serious damage to the body’s organs and tissues.

These are just a few examples of the types of conditions that may require critical care. Patients with these conditions are typically treated in an intensive care unit (ICU), where they can receive close monitoring and life-support treatments.


You may approach the Critical Care Medicine department if you are suffering from any of the following:

It’s important to note that this is not an exhaustive list and any situation that may pose a risk to the life of a person should be considered as a medical emergency and should be treated as such.


The critical care department at SRV Hospital in Mumbai operates on a rotating schedule, with doctors working 12-hour shifts to ensure that there is always a critical care specialist available 24/7. This means that the doctor who is caring for your loved one may change during the day or night shift and every few days. While this may be confusing, rest assured that all of our intensivists are highly trained in critical care and work together to ensure seamless and optimal care for patients, even when a new doctor takes over.

BiPAP is a device that helps breathing by providing oxygen through a mask worn on the face. It uses bilevel positive airway pressure technology to assist the patient’s breathing.

A ventilator is a device that helps a person to breathe by providing oxygen through a tube inserted into the airway, which can be either through the nose or mouth (endotracheal tube) or through a hole in the neck (tracheostomy). The machine pumps oxygen into the lungs, allowing the person to breathe more easily.
