PICS QUIZ - ANALYZING YOUR TEST RESULTS
Thank you for taking this test, which is a modified version of a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Test prepared by a psychologist on staff at PostICU, Inc.
The test is based upon a review of PICS tests administered by several Post ICU Treatment Clinics as of January 2020.
PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER YOUR TEST RESULTS TO BE A DIAGNOSIS OR DEFINITIVE OF ANYTHING LIKE A DIAGNOSIS. THIS IS AN ASSESSMENT TOOL FOR YOU TO SHARE WITH YOUR CAREGIVER, FAMILY AND, PCP.
ANALYZING YOUR POINT TOTALS:
2 to 8 Points = a SLIGHT possibility of a PICS diagnosis.
10 to 20 Points = a STRONG POSSIBILITY of a PICS diagnosis.
22 to 30 Points = a LIKELY diagnosis of PICS diagnosis.
32 or More Points = a STRONG LIKELIHOOD of PICS diagnosis.
REMINDER, your results on this SELF-TEST are not a diagnosis of either having
our not having PICS. This SELF-TEST is a helpful and instructive guide.
