Many coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) recovering patients who have been affected by the severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection can experience persistent symptoms which can last beyond 4 weeks. This can be known as ‘long COVID’ and can include a broad range of symptoms, such as breathlessness and fatigue and this can overlap with post-intensive care syndrome (PICS).

PICS can include a wide variety of physical, psychological, and cognitive symptoms which can affect 25% of critically ill survivors, who experience fatigue, post-traumatic stress, and muscle weakness. This syndrome can last up to 5 years and can affect the readmission rates of patients who are struggling to recover from fatigue-related illnesses such as COVID-19.
