60%

Will Have Cognitive Deficits, Like a Traumatic Brain Injury

Will Experience Anxiety

25%

Will Have Cognitive Deficits, Like Mild Dementia

* The following percentages represent a conservative estimate as found in a cross-section of PICS research. Many researchers place much higher percentages on these symptoms & medical conditions.

Our Mission is to Build a Large Community of PostICU Members. As a Group, We Hope to Improve the Above Listed Percentages.

In addition to providing educational tools to former ICU patients, their caregivers & families, the medical community, and the public, PostICU believes that its role in the process of addressing the PICS major health crisis is to recruit as many members to join our 501(c)3 nonprofit agency.

With the support of a large membership, we will be positioned to approach decision-makers at critical care organizations, hospitals, and health insurance companies. We'd like a seat at the table, so that we can offer commonsense solutions to this complex medical problem.
