KINGSTON — As Dr. Gordon Boyd walks around the crowded intensive care unit at Kingston General Hospital treating his patients, he knows this is just the beginning for them.

He knows that because of his research while leading in the post-ICU discharge clinic.

I do worry about the incredible wave of long-term morbidity this could have because of the COVID pandemic,” Boyd said.

He explained that the research — speaking to patients who have been discharged from the ICU — shows they develop anxiety, depression and cognitive impairments. He also said that 35 per cent of ICU survivors develop severe post-traumatic stress disorder.
