Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS)
Almost 6 million patients a year are admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) in the United States, according to the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM). The majority of those survive to be discharged. But for many of them, though their initial illness or injury may have been resolved, a new challenge awaits—a cluster of health problems commonly referred to as post-intensive care syndrome (PICS).
