According to a medical report by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), millions of patients are usually admitted to ICU annually in which a third of this population require a ventilator for breathing purposes. They are critically ill and after leaving the ICU, most of them develop health complications related to their injury, illness, ventilator and other treatments. In most cases, such issues are hardly treated and continue after a patient leaves the health sector. Notably, sepsis, delirium, and respiratory distress syndrome may increase the chances of a person experiencing these health issues. There has been an advancement of healthcare with a motive of improving outcomes for these patients as well as their recovery.
