Critical Care Medicine is the branch of medicine that specializes in caring for patients whose condition is life-threatening and who require comprehensive care and constant monitoring, usually in a critical or intensive care unit.
All Oklahoma Respiratory Institute Physicians are board certified in Critical Care Medicine and have the latest training in all aspects of Critical Care.
Communication between health care providers and family members is an important part of Critical Care Medicine. ORI physicians work closely with your private physician, medical/ surgical specialists, and ancillary professionals to coordinate the care provided to the critically ill patient.
Our physicians meet regularly with the patient and family to provide information regarding the patient’s diagnosis, condition, treatment plan, and prognosis. They work with the patient and their family to ensure the treatment plan is consistent with the patient’s previously stated or written wishes.
