Post Intensive Care Syndrome for Families (PICS-F)
Patients who survive long stays in the intensive care unit (ICU), such as those who receive prolonged mechanical ventilation, will most often require continued assistance from a caregiver more than a year after ICU discharge. The effects of this responsibility on the family caregivers are not well known but may include such negative consequences as poor health-related quality of life, emotional distress, a subjective sense of burden, and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder.
