Critical Care Medicine relates to the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Physicians with training in Critical Care Medicine are considered intensivists and have experience treating critically ill patients. Patients requiring intensive care services may require support for instability, airway or respiratory compromise, acute renal failure, or the effects of multiple organ failure. Mid-South Pulmonary Specialists, P.C. has 19 providers who are board certified in Critical Care Medicine; providing intensivist and critical care services at seven Memphis area hospitals. As intensivists, our physicians oversee the many decisions involved in the ICU patient's care, and coordinate other services the patient may need from other specialists.
