In less than 10 years intensive care units have become an essential part of most general hospitals. They have demonstrated their value in the treatment of the critically ill. Obviously, in the initial development of such instrumentation our attention was focused on mastering the technology. A reasonable level of mastery now appears to exist. I therefore believe this is an appropriate time to examine the impact of this environment on the people who live in it-patients and staff.
