The epicenter of medicine, in recent times over the past 40 years, has moved from the doctor to the patient. This has reduced the status of the physician to that of a specialized technician, who cannot make any mistakes, thanks to the internet too. The result is that the patient does not listen to the doctor but depends on the technology and internet-based information. The letter has moved from 2% in the early 18th century to 73% in 2016.

Critical care or intensive care medicine surgical care has grown by leaps and bounds in the recent years. Growth is never without resistance to provide much needed care in the intensive care units (ICUs). The simulated ICU of the future will have adapted to several edge technologies to constantly reduce the need for human intervention. With advanced medical devices other support systems that redefine the existing operational ecosystem, will come to the forefront. The cost of ICU stay will increase despite the atmosphere becoming more hassle-free!
