Emergency and Intensive Care constitute a medical specialty focused on diagnosing and treating life-threatening conditions that necessitate advanced organ support and invasive monitoring. Patients in need of intensive care may require assistance for instability in vital signs (such as hypertension or hypotension), compromised airway or respiratory function (including ventilator support), acute kidney failure, potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias, or the combined effects of multiple organ failure, often termed multiple organ dysfunction syndrome nowadays.

Additionally, individuals may be admitted for intensive or invasive monitoring, particularly during critical periods following major surgery when they are considered too unstable to transfer to a less closely monitored unit. Intensive care is typically reserved for those whose condition is potentially reversible and who stand a good chance of survival with intensive support. A key criterion for admission to an intensive care unit (ICU) is the potential for overcoming the underlying condition.
