We are going to discuss Post Intensive Care Syndrome and Prevention Part II - what loved ones can do to help prevent PICS.

It is not uncommon for loved ones to feel overwhelmed when in the intensive care unit. The ICU is a very unfamiliar and scary environment for most people, and caring for your critically ill loved one can seem like too much at times. However, the physical presence through voice and touch that a loved one can provide can be as therapeutically beneficial as many of the interventions provided by the medical team.
