6-month to 1 year survival rates of critical COVID-19 patients are similar to those of non-COVID-19 patients admitted to ICU
COVID-19 patients who have survived intensive care (ICU) admission are at risk of developing both post intensive care syndrome (PICS) and Long COVID. PICS includes impairments in physical, cognitive and psychological dimensions
Long-term survival follow up of COVID patients indicates that they experience similar levels of impairments in physical, cognitive and psychological dimensions as historical non-COVID reference populations.
The most common long-term impairments reported by COVID patients are persistent dyspnea/breathlessness, general weakness/fatigue and ongoing psychological symptoms such as anxiety, depression and PTSD
