More than 5.7 million Americans are admitted to an ICU each year, and at least half who survive treatment will suffer long-term disorders that were acquired or exacerbated by a combination of their initial illness and the treatment they received in an ICU. The symptoms can include debilitating muscle weakness, mobility problems, cognitive decline, and psychological problems. Both critical illness myopathy and lack of mental acuity can prolong the recovery process.
