Intensive care units attempt to provide high quality of care to not only to critically ill patients but also provide support to their families during the critical illness. The intensivist spends a lot of his time in the close ICU while providing care. Follow-up ICU clinic is the concept which opens a new horizon for an intensivist from close door ICU to OPD based follow-up ICU clinics. Most of the time patients in ICUs are on mechanical ventilation with sedation with or without muscle relaxant. So interaction between health care provider and the patient are very little, and due to the immense patient load on ICU, they are discharged or transferred back to lower facility as early as possible.
