ICU Thrive Initiatives
More people are surviving critical illness, leading to an increase
in a condition called post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). PICS
is made up of health problems that remain after critical illness.
These problems can involve the patient’s body, thoughts,
feelings, or mind and may affect the family. The THRIVE
initiative aims to help educate patients, their families, and the
healthcare community about PICS and provide resources for
how to thrive after an ICU stay.
As does Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), USA, Critical care team at Vayodha also believes that ICU survivors have unique knowledge and skills that they can share with each other to help improve recovery. The THRIVE Initiative seeks to catalyze this sharing by creating an ICU survivor community. In face-to- face supervised groups, survivors will offer mutual support and share solutions related to ICU recovery.
