Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS)

COVID-19 Related:



Millions of people worldwide have survived an
admission to the intensive care unit (ICU), and
the number of survivors is growing [1]. While
these patients have survived a life-threatening
illness, most survivors suffer important long-term
complications [2]. Post-intensive care syndrome
(PICS) is a term that describes the cognitive,
psychological, physical and other consequences
that plague ICU survivors [3, 4]. Our aim is to discuss
the prevalence, risk factors, impact, prevention and
management of PICS.
