Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
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 post-traumatic stress disorder.
