Physical therapists can aid COVID-19 patients’ recovery after ICU

Media Originally for:
At least half of all patients who survive treatment in an intensive care unit will experience at least one of a triad of problems associated with post-intensive care syndrome, or PICS, and this may be true for people recovering from COVID-19 following ICU care.
PICS can manifest as problems with physical function, cognition and mental health, according to a fact sheet from the American Thoracic Society.
PICS is a relatively under-recognized issue, despite the fact that it affects a large number of people treated in an ICU, according to Patricia Ohtake, associate professor in the physical therapy program, School of Public Health and Health Professions.
