EVERY YEAR, ABOUT 6 million people are admitted to intensive care units with a life-threatening illness. As medical technology advances, more people survive conditions that once would have been fatal. However, about half of these ICU survivors develop some form of cognitive, psychosocial and physical deficits in a condition known as post-intensive care syndrome, or PICS.
