This article was first published in the Winter 2022 issue of Critical Connections. Demand for ICU beds has increased during the past decades, accelerated by the surge of COVID-19 throughout the United States. Community hospitals have become overwhelmed by the increased surplus of patients requiring organ support in the ICU, which later trickles down to major metropolitan hospitals that also become saturated with patients from outside facilities lacking intensivists. Experts predict that an intensivist shortage is looming as demand for ICU services increases. We have reached the point where demand has overcome the supply of intensivists. Authors: Orlando Garner, MD Louisdon Pierre, MD, MBA, FCCM Critical Connections, the critical care industry's only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team.
