Critical Care

Critical care pharmacists work in one of the many intensive care units of a health-system (e.g., medical, surgical, cardiovascular). A critical care pharmacist works with the intensive care team and makes recommendations regarding medication use including appropriate antibiotic therapy and duration, drip rates and titration for vasopressor agents, IV compatibility and stability, and proper use and administration of anticoagulants.
