extreme in effect or action : severe or serious

I found this word in an article called “Aaron Ralston’s Story”. The word is found in this sentence,”After three days of not seeing or hearing any sign of life Aaron realised he would die there if he didn’t do something drastic.” If I don’t know the definition of this word, I wouldn’t understand how bad the situation was.
