Case Discussion on Post ICU Syndrome

Post-ICU Syndrome is a condition that affects individuals who have been discharged from an intensive care unit (ICU). Physical Symptoms may include muscle weakness, fatigue, mobility issues, and difficulties with activities of daily living. Many individuals experience memory problems, difficulties with concentration, and other cognitive issues. This is often referred to as "ICU-related delirium." Anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are common psychological issues that can result from the ICU experience. Prolonged ICU stay, use of sedatives and medications, mechanical ventilation, and underlying health conditions can increase the risk of developing Post-ICU Syndrome. Physical and occupational therapy are often essential components of recovery to regain strength and function.
