Breaking it Down: Post Intensive Care Syndrome and Recovery - The Mind
Media Originally for:
Former ICU Patients or Their Caregivers, General Public
Short term memory loss. Word finding difficulty. Trouble concentrating. Difficulty with work or school. These are some of the symptoms that patients with Post Intensive Care Syndrome describe having following critical illness/injury. These symptoms can vary on the spectrum of severity, but for those who suffer from the cognitive effects of PICS even subtle difficulties can be life-changing. Loss of work, poor academic performance, and disrupted personal lives are unfortunately a reality for many people affected by PICS.
