Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Significant improvements have been made with regard to mortality in patients with sepsis and critical illness over the last decade. However, this success is mitigated by the fact that 60-80 % of critically ill patients will become delirious during their hospital stay1, 50-70% will suffer cognitive impairment after discharge,2 and 60-80% will have physical disability due to ICU acquired weakness3. Furthermore, survivors of critical illness are five times more likely to develop depression4 after discharge and up to 25% will experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)5.
