PICS is a term to describe health problems that remain after critical illness. They are present when the patient is in the ICU and may persist after the patient returns home. Symptoms start after the critical illness, persist after discharge from the ICU and can last for weeks, months and even years.
Brain (cognitive) symptoms
Poor memory & thinking problems
Trouble organizing & problem solving
Post traumatic stress disorder
Nightmares & unwanted memories

To help our patients recover maximally from PICS, we have created the Post Critical Care Recovery Clinic at Hoag Hospital.
Our multi-disciplinary team of clinicians are focused on diagnosing and successfully treating PICS.
