Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS)

COVID-19 Related:



The intensive care unit (ICU) stay has been linked with a number of physical and psychological sequelae, known collectively as post‐intensive care syndrome (PICS). Specific ICU follow‐up services are relatively recent developments in health systems, and may have the potential to address PICS through targeting unmet health needs arising from the experience of the ICU stay. There is currently no single accepted model of follow‐up service and current aftercare programmes encompass a variety of interventions and materials. There is uncertain evidence about whether follow‐up services effectively address PICS, and this review assesses this.
