The future of critical care.


Critical care has become an important part of the health care system; however, it still is provided in a heterogeneous, and likely suboptimal, fashion. Future challenges will include providing an adequate workforce; ensuring critical care is delivered to the right patients at the right time; converting advances in our understanding of the biology of critical illness into improved care and outcomes; and partnering successfully with patients, families, and society in forging the critical care of the future.
