Can anyone give me some insight into what critical care doctors do? How often do they get to diagnose a patient? Do they just manage patients in the icu, or do they do more? Thanks for any responses.

Drink lots of coffee, turf pts to floor and disagree with epidemiology on whether something qualifies as a clabsi. And post snarky comments on message forums.

How often do they get to diagnose a patient? Often

Do they just manage patients in the icu, or do they do more? Yes

They take care of corpses in the unit until the monitors get shut off, all the while wasting 6-7 figures of tax payer money in the process.
