Information about Critical Care

Patients and families staying in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) or Coronary Care Unit (CCU) often have questions about their care. The Society of Critical Care Medicine has created a Web site to address family and patient concerns and to provide guidance during their stay. The site is endorsed by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. To visit this helpful Web site, click here.
