Developing an early screening instrument for predicting psychological morbidity after critical illness. Critical care, Sept 2013, 17: R210
Schandl, A., et al.
Guidelines recommend follow-up for patients after intensive care unit (ICU) stay. Methods for identifying patients with psychological problems after intensive care would be of value, to optimize treatment and to improve adequate resource allocation in ICU followup of ICU survivors. The aim of the study was to develop a predictive screening instrument – for use at ICU discharge – to identify patients at risk for post-traumatic stress, anxiety or depression.
