About Critical Care Section

Emergency medicine (EM) critical care is a growing community, and the Critical Care Medicine Section is working to serve as a clearinghouse for good ideas and productive partnerships. We strive to serve as a voice for our members, provide a tool for communication among EM intensivists and those interested in the care of the critically ill, and serve as a national platform for issues important to our group. We’d love to have you join us in our efforts!
