BACKGROUND Until relatively recently, critical care practitioners have focused on the survival of their patients and not on long-term outcomes. The incidence of chronic neurocognitive dysfunction has been underestimated and underreported, and only recently has it been studied in critically ill patients. However, neurocognitive outcomes have been the subject of extensive investigation in other medical populations for many years. METHODS Review of the current literature regarding long-term… Expand
The role of future longitudinal studies in ICU survivors: understanding determinants and pathophysiology of brain dysfunction
TLDR
Important areas of investigation heretofore unaddressed and proposed directions for clinically oriented outcomes research are examined. Expand
Assessing neurocognitive outcomes after critical illness: are delirium and long-term cognitive impairments related?
TLDR
Possible relationships between delirium and long-term cognitive impairments are examined in the context of critical illness to define the extent of their association in intensive care unit cohorts. Expand
Cognitive functioning, mental health, and quality of life in ICU survivors: an overview.
TLDR
A pressing need exists for additional investigation of cognitive impairment and other conditions, such as PTSD and quality of life after critical illness, that will seek to untangle the many pertinent questions related to this condition and that will ultimately offer help and hope to the thousands of survivors affected by this condition. Expand
Risk factors for long-term brain dysfunction after chronic critical illness.
TLDR
LTBD after treatment for CCI is associated with brain dysfunction during such treatment as well as with older age and higher severity of illness of the patients. Expand
Short- and long-term cognitive outcomes in intensive care unit survivors.
TLDR
Cognitive impairment is common in intensive care unit survivors, although the nature, severity, and natural history remain unclear and the contributions of these many factors may be particularly significant in patients with pre-existing vulnerabilities for the development of cognitive impairments. Expand
Cognitive functioning, mental health, and quality of life in ICU survivors: an overview.
TLDR
Patients with preexisting vulnerabilities, including predisposing genetic factors, and frail elderly populations may be at particular risk for emergence of acceleration of conditions such as mild cognitive impairment. Expand
Cognitive functioning, mental health, and quality of life in ICU survivors: an overview.
TLDR
Patients with preexisting vulnerabilities, including predisposing genetic factors, and frail elderly populations may be at particular risk for emergence of acceleration of conditions such as mild cognitive impairment. Expand
Neurocognitive problems in critically ill older adults: the importance of history.
TLDR
Older adults are at greater risk for the development of neurocognitive problems during critical illness than are their younger counterparts, particularly if they have preexisting cognitive impairment, and these problems can persist after discharge and affect quality of life. Expand
Brain Dysfunction in Patients with Chronic Critical Illness
TLDR
Management strategies that have been proven beneficial during acute critical illness—such as reduction of sedative exposure, especially to benzodiazepines, and early use of physical and occupational therapy—should be employed during the treatment of patients with CCI. Expand
Delirium and long-term cognitive impairment
TLDR
A review of studies published since Jackson's review confirmed that there is a link between delirium and LTCI, and discusses putative mechanisms and explanations. Expand

Six-month neuropsychological outcome of medical intensive care unit patients
TLDR
Prolonged neuropsychological impairment is common among survivors of the medical intensive care unit and occurs with greater than anticipated frequency when compared with relevant normative data. Expand
Prolonged cognitive dysfunction in survivors of critical illness
TLDR
Although cognitive performance improved with time, it remained below normal; by 9 months, four of the eight domains of Short‐Form 36 showed significant improvement. Expand
Neuropsychological sequelae and impaired health status in survivors of severe acute respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
A substantial portion of ARDS survivors exhibit impaired health status and cognitive sequelae which may be due to hypoxemia, emboli, inflammation, drug toxicity, and/or other etiologies one year after ARDS. Expand
The relationship between cognitive performance and employment and health status in long-term survivors of the acute respiratory distress syndrome: results of an exploratory study.
TLDR
Impaired health status and the presence of cognitive deficits is associated with disability and considerable impairments in HRQOL, and more detailed psychiatric research is required to establish the etiology of these cognitive impairments. Expand
Longitudinal assessment of neurocognitive function after coronary-artery bypass surgery.
TLDR
The course of cognitive change during the five years after CABG and the effect of perioperative decline on long-term cognitive function were determined. Expand
Longitudinal assessment of neurocognitive function after coronary-artery bypass surgery.
TLDR
These results confirm the relatively high prevalence and persistence of cognitive decline after CABG and suggest a pattern of early improvement followed by a later decline that is predicted by the presence of early postoperative cognitive decline. Expand
Health-related quality of life after acute lung injury.
TLDR
It is concluded that long after lung injury, survivors have significantly lower health-related quality of life than the general population and are likely to have pulmonary and psychologic symptoms. Expand
One-year outcomes in survivors of the acute respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
The absence of systemic corticosteroid treatment, the absence of illness acquired during the intensive care unit stay, and rapid resolution of lung injury and multiorgan dysfunction were associated with better functional status during the one-year follow-up. Expand
Pulmonary function and health-related quality of life in survivors of acute respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
Acute respiratory distress syndrome survivors treated with high and low tidal volumes have abnormal pulmonary function that was related to decreased health-related quality of life 1 year after hospital discharge. Expand
Cognitive Deficits Following Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: Prevalence, Prognosis, and Therapeutic Strategies
TLDR
The results of multicenter long-term outcome studies will more conclusively address some of these issues and emphasize the need for clinicians to monitor cognitive function before and after coronary bypass surgery, and to educate patients. Expand
