Mr. Henry H. felt somewhat disoriented.

“Yes. I had the feeling. Yes. It wasn’t like that. They were trying to help me. But when you’re yeah in a nightmare and so half and half awake / uh yeah. It’s hard to explain. It’s so real, unreal.”

Experiences in the intensive care unit

With the technical and medical possibilities on intensive care a patient can be able to survive life-threatening illnesses. These experiences of critical illness and intensive care medicine are challenging for patients and families. Often experiences made on intensive care unit (ICU) can be life changing.
In small video- or audio-sequences we would like to illustrate the experiences made by patients on ICU and how they handled their stay in this critical situation.
Many patients share their experiences on intensive care unit and show how these experiences influenced their life.

We are curious about your story!
