Extract

Today, the treatment of critically ill and injured adults involves complex care paradigms that are delivered by interprofessional teams at the time of the day or night when evaluation or management is needed. The need for time-sensitive critical care interventions and the steadily rising numbers of adult critically ill and injured patients have sparked interest in new ways to provide timely and effective treatments. Optimal outcomes for patients with serious infections, coronary artery occlusion, stroke, bleeding victims of blunt or penetrating trauma, and patients with acute respiratory failure require distinct treatments that are time sensitive. The rising need for critical care was accurately predicted from models of the aging dynamics of our population and increasing utilization of critical care with decades of life after adolescence.
