Abstract

Postintensive care syndrome (PICS) is a heterogeneous syndrome marked by physical, cognitive, and mental health impairments experienced by critical care survivors. It is a syndrome that bears significant human and health care costs. Additional research is needed to identify risk factors and diagnostic, preventative, and treatment strategies for PICS. Trauma intensive care unit patients are particularly vulnerable to posttraumatic stress disorder, which shares some of the adverse long-term consequences of PICS and also requires additional research into effective preventative and management strategies.
