Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) is a group of health problems that can include physical impairments, mental health issues, and cognitive difficulties following a critical illness or hospital stay. Critical diseases can consist of but are not limited to heart attacks, stroke, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, motor vehicle accident, burns, and surgical problems. Nearly one million people are admitted to the ICU each year, with close to a third requiring ventilation. Sepsis, delirium, and acute respiratory distress syndrome increase the odds of being diagnosed with PICS.
