The exemplary efforts put in by the ICU team during the trying period of Covid 19 Pandemic speak volumes of their compassion, competence, and dedication.

The technological advances in evaluations and management of critically ill patients in all leading hospitals have changed in unimaginable ways. However, the principles of evaluation and management have not changed. The bedside physical examination still remains the cornerstone of clinical judgement. It is much faster, often more accurate and time-saving in emergencies. It is, therefore, the essence of Critical Care Medicine, where immediate interventions can often make the difference between life and death.
