Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people have been hospitalized in the ICU. The CDC estimates that nearly one in five young adults will be admitted into the ICU due to COVID. With more and more Americans being admitted to the ICU, many people have started to wonder what are the long-term effects of an ICU visit? Many people have reported having post-ICU PTSD, increased rates of anxiety, or delayed cognitive function.
