Advances in critical care medicine in recent times has led to favourable outcomes of critical patients, although at a very high cost. Military operations along with Natural or manmade disasters are two scenarios where critical patients are left in austere environment or an environment made austere. Providing Advanced ICU facilities in the austere environment may not prove to be economical or sustainable, hence the need arose for mobile ICU or the CCATT (Critical care air transport team) for immediate air transport of critical patients to Advanced ICU centers.
