Former ICU Patients or Their Caregivers
A steadily increasing number of patients survive their stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and a significant percentage become chronic cases. Patient post-intensive care syndrome (PICS-P) is a recently described condition that affects an important number of patients (30---50%). It encompasses the physical (mainly respiratory and neuromuscular), cognitive (memory and attention) and psychological sequelae (depression, anxiety, stress and/or post traumatic stress syndrome)
at discharge from the ICU, and which have a negative impact
upon patient quality of life.
