PICS stands for Post-Intensive Care Syndrome. Sometimes it’s called post ICU syndrome. PICS is defined as new or worse health problems after critical illness. These problems can affect your mind, body, thoughts, and/or feelings.

You can read members talking about it in this discussion:
Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) – Let's talk https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/post-intensive-care-syndrome-pics-lets-talk/

And find more information about it on the Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) page (blog) https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/pics/
See the series of blogs that @andreab wrote called "Breaking it down". In the series she discusses the multiple aspects of PICS.

Walisky, do you have an experience with ICU?
