ICU Recovery

Patients & Families

Even after brief stays in ICU, people can experience long-lasting difficulties related to their hospital stay. Common problems after ICU that people experience when they go home include difficulties with fatigue, strength, sleep, mood, thinking and quality-of-life.

Usually these difficulties settle on their own but some people experience long-lasting effects. Many of these problems are only partially related to their original reason for going in to ICU.
