The physiological response to critical illness is strongly linked to patient outcome. The ultimate aim of monitoring, ICU scores, understanding ABG, ECG and Imaging in the critically ill is to assist in the prevention or treatment of organ dysfunction and cellular injury by optimizing the supply of oxygen to the tissues. It all starts with a systematic approach to assess correctly the priorities in the management. Clinicians working in ICU witness the human tragedy following multisystem injury and can be powerful advocates of the principles of primary, secondary, and tertiary evaluation.
