Samenvatting

Patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) comprise of a heterogeneous population with substantial differences in admission diagnosis, length of stay and co-morbidity. Therefore, very often the prognosis for each patient differs. In the Netherlands, over 20% of the more than 80,000 patients treated in ICU annually will die within a year of admission. Some of those who survive and are discharged from ICU experience persistent physical, mental and cognitive health problems post-discharge; this is called post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). One year following discharge, circa 50% of patients continue to report physical symptoms, including muscle weakness and walking difficulties. Approximately one in five patients discharged from ICU will develop symptoms akin to post-traumatic stress disorder, and one third will experience depressive symptoms for some time. It remains unclear to what extent the actual ICU admission may potentially contribute to the decline in performance status and quality of life.
