In brief: Intensivist

Sirs is a serious illness usually requiring intensive medical care.
In the adult world, most pulmonologists are also intensivists since they get dual qualification. However in pediatrics, pulmonology and intensive care are two separate specialties. Another name for intensivist: critical care specialist.
