Webinar | COVID-19 Post-ICU Syndrome: The Coming Wave That Needs Attention Now and What the Evidence Indicates
The webinar recording is available.
The effects of COVID-19 on patients who required mechanical ventilation during intensive care unit stays are far from over upon their discharge from the hospital and short-term rehabilitation. These patients are at high risk of developing a debilitating syndrome that can persist months or longer and that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality: Post-intensive care syndrome (PICS).
Sufficient follow-up and screening for PICS to effectively treat and manage the syndrome is critical. Increased diagnosis and treatment could create a capacity challenge for rehabilitation facilities and mental health service providers in regions with many COVID-19 survivors.
