MIJA would like to thank and recognize all the dedicated nursing professionals who care for critically ill patients and their families. In honor of their dedication and effort, May is designated National Critical Care Awareness and Recognition Month. This observance is an excellent time to celebrate the amazing critical care nurses that make a difference in the lives of their patients each and every day!
What is Critical Care Medicine?
Critical care medicine is the specialized care of patients whose conditions and diseases are life-threatening and who require comprehensive care and constant monitoring, usually in intensive care units. Critical Care includes conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, respiratory issues, burns, gunshot wound, and many others.
