Post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) is a collection of symptoms, limitations, and impairments that are present in people who have recently been treated in a hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU). These impairments may be chronic and may limit your full participation in your normal activities upon discharge from the ICU.

If you have been recently discharged from the intensive care unit, you may benefit from the care of a physical therapist to help you recover fully and return to your previous level of work and recreational activity.
