Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) survival has increased substantially over the past three decades. Currently, an understanding of PICU morbidity and recovery among PICU survivors and their families is limited. Post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) consists of new or worsening impairments in physical, cognitive, or mental health status that arise and may persist after critical illness. The characteristics of PICS in children (PICS-p) are unknown. The objective of this study is to learn about pediatric recovery from critical illness to guide future intervention research to optimize child and family health.
