Effective interprofessional collaboration between surgeons and intensivists impacts patients.
Critical care medicine specialists, commonly known as intensivists, are doctors who specialise in the care of patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). Intensivists are doctors who specialise in the care of critically sick patients who direct and provide critical care in an ICU. Intubations, central line placements, arterial line placements, thoracentesis, lumbar punctures, and bronchoscopies are among the operations performed by intensivists. Anesthesiologists may work as intensivists, or critical care doctors, in intensive care units. Hospitalists spend their whole workweek in the hospital; therefore they are conveniently accessible even after hours and on weekends. Our Intensivists are board-certified physicians who provide specialised care in the ICU for critically ill patients. Anesthesiologists earn a lot of money since they are important medical experts before, during, and after surgical procedures. Another reason they earn a lot is that they went through years of expensive college, training, residency, and fellowship.Author(s): Peter J. Klenn
