Critical care is a cutting edge of medicine. Be present at the forefront of such advanced specialty by contributing to patient care, research in the field or education of future colleagues is demanding but very rewarding. Our patients are coming to the edge what their bodies can tolerate, but we bring them back with an ultimate goal of meaningful re-unification with close ones and participation in society. As a practicing anesthesiologist and critical care physician, I have frequently found myself powerless in assuring the full recovery of my patients. I want to see my patients enjoying their lives and families, engaging in their communities, and improving their lives. This is my ultimate goal as a physician. A better understanding as to why some of my patients do not experience full recovery after a critical care event would provide me with more accurate prognoses and individualized care.
