Post Intensive Care Syndrome, popularly known as PICS, is a condition that affects large numbers of intensive care unit (ICU) survivors. PICS is defined as a syndrome in which individuals experience new or worsening difficulties in cognitive, mental health, or physical functioning domains and, as a result, display difficulties in functioning. While always a concern, the likelihood of individuals developing PICS during the COVID-19 pandemic is very high and thus an issue that medical providers, patients, and families should pay close attention to. In this presentation, we will discuss wide-ranging aspects of PICS, with a focus on prevention and treatment strategies, both in the ICU and beyond.
