ICU Psychosis: A Critical overview

Long stays in ICUs increase the risk of developing ICU psychosis. It is a mental disorder that affects people admitted to intensive care units which typically resolves within a few days to weeks after discharge from the ICU. It is characterized by confusion, disorientation, and delusions. Early recognition and treatment of ICU psychosis can help improve patient outcomes and reduce the risk of long-term complications. Treatment may include reducing the use of sedatives and other medications, providing a calming environment, and using antipsychotic medication.
