Critical Care Nursing

Critical care or ICU nursing is a nursing specialization that specifically deals with highly dependent patients. There are a variety of ICU specialties where critical care nurses can work including surgery, trauma, coronary, medical, paediatric, burns, cardio thorax, and high-risk nurseries. Critical care nursing with long hours (including night shifts), extensive patient handling and high-pressure conditions can be mentally and physically demanding. Critical care nurses need to be able to make sophisticated judgments quickly because ICU patients are often unstable and can experience rapid physiological decline. The critical nurse will contact the new team to ensure a safe transition when a patient is discharged from the ICU and transferred to another hospital management unit. ICU nurses often work with a multidisciplinary team of doctors, consultants, physiotherapists and other specialists to ensure optimum patient care.
