Evaluation of the syndrome POSTUCI
The ICU stay is a traumatic and stressful event for both patients and their families.
They generally suffer a series of physical and psycho-emotional alterations that tend to last after discharge, which is known as Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS).
The prevalence of delirium is high in the intensive care unit (ICU) and occurs in up to 70% of the sickest patients requiring mechanical ventilation. The first studies in hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) report delirium rates of 20-30%, increasing to 60-70% in serious illnesses.
