Modern critical care medicine has the ability to bring people from the brink of death and to keep people alive for much longer than in the past. It has now been known that these survivors can develop myriad mental and/or physical disabilities after treatment in the intensive care unit. In fact, up to 50% of patients who stay in the ICU for at least on week are susceptible to PICS. Research is now shedding light as to the severity and the need for education and post-care for patients and families as they deal with the aftermath of this.
