In 2010, the Society of Critical Care Medicine organized a task force to raise awareness of the long-term cognitive, psychological, and physical impairments in survivors of critical illness. Impairments in these three domains are collectively known as post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). PICS affects 50–70% of intensive care unit (ICU) survivors, and its effects can persist for 5–15 years after ICU hospitalization. One major barrier in the assessment of PICS is the lack of a single, validated clinical tool to rapidly assess impairments in all three domains of PICS.
