Regarding the March 4 online article, ALI patients on ventilation vulnerable to PTSD (Nurse.com/Article/ALI-Patients-PTSD), I was in an ICU on a vent three times between July and October of 2012.
This article was so interesting and valuable to me. Each time I was on the vent for five days and each recovery has been a journey, more so from the trauma, for sure.
Thank you for sharing this information.
