This study evaluates if a web-based 1-year programme is a useful method for follow-up intensive care survivors with short ICU-stay. Half of the participants are randomized into receiving the web-based follow-up while the other half will receive no follow-up.


It is not uncommon for Intensive care survivors to have persisting, psychiatric, cognitive and physical impairments long time after the critical illness occurred. Today, nurse-led follow-up is used but the main focus is on patients with a ICU-stay for at least three days. This study evaluates ICU-survivors with a maximum ICU-stay for 72 hours.

Participants are randomized to the web-based one year follow-up programme and no follow-up. Both group receive questionnaire 2, 6 and 12 month after the end of their intensive care stay.

The web-based follow-up programme includes, short lectures that describes the intensive care e.g. hallucinations, memory loss and delirium. The programme also include short films that shows the medical equipment and how and why its used. Regular contact with ICU-nurse to discuss any upcoming problems.
