Study aim was to evaluate the frequency and severity of depressive and anxiety symptoms and cognitive impairment at ICU dismissal and three months after hospital dismissal. Delirium, days of invasive ventilator use, and ICU length of stay were associated with worse psychocognitive scores. Data indicates cognitive impairment and anxiety and depression symptoms can be present at ICU dismissal, but not significantly different across ICU settings, suggesting an OT role in intervention and assessment.
