ALI patients and PTSD


Regarding the March 4 online article, “ALI patients on ventilation vulnerable to 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.
