Critical Care, Inc. Announces Signing Letter of Intent With Toquaht First Nations

DEL MAR, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 31, 2006 -- Critical Care, Inc. (OTCBB: CTCC) is pleased to announce that a letter of intent has been signed with the Toquaht First Nations, under the direction of Chief Bert Mack, to establish a dialysis facility in the wellness center to be located within the fourteen member tribal area of the Nuchalnith on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Native North Americans have 2.6 times higher rates for developing Type 2 Diabetes, leading to kidney disease than in the white population due to high genetic, medical and lifestyle risk factors. There are 55,000 First Nations People on Vancouver Island and it is estimated that 28% have diabetic problems and 12% have kidney disease.

The establishment of this center is proposed to be the first among a number that will be strategically located on the Island so that the population can be effectively tested and then treated in a timely manner. The rate of new cases is increasing by ten percent per year for Native American and Alaskan Natives, compared to six percent for caucasians.

This proposed transaction will provide a tremendous opportunity for both CTCC to establish a strategic clinic base and for the First Nations Peoples to have, in effect, proprietary facilities in which their diagnostic and treatment needs will be met in a pro-active environment and a timely manner.

The letter of intent is subject to the successful negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement.
