To recap from our first post in this series, the definition of Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) is new or worsening health problems after a stay in the ICU. These health problems can affect the body, mind, and/or emotions and often present after the patient has been discharged from the hospital. These problems may last anywhere from a few weeks, to months, and in some cases even years. People with PICS often experience a wide array of symptoms.
