ANZICS CTG Endorsed Study
PAIN in Survivors of Intensive Care Units (The PAIN-ICU Study): A Prospective, Multi-centre Observational Cohort Study to Determine the Incidence, Risk Factors and Impact of Chronic Pain in Critically Ill Adult Patients Discharged from ICU.
1. Determine the incidence and characteristics of chronic pain 6 months after ICU discharge.
Noting that there is a high incidence of chronic pain in ICU survivors, we aim to confirm this and hypothesise that risk factors associated with analgesic management, sedative management and immobility are implicated in the development of chronic pain.
