Groups/Cohorts
Spouses
This group of relatives includes the spouses of ICU patients (over 16 years of age and intubated and under ventilation for at least 48 hours) meeting stated inclusion criteria.
Other relatives
This group of relatives includes the non-spouse relatives of ICU patients (over 16 years of age and intubated and under ventilation for at least 48 hours) meeting stated inclusion criteria.

Detailed Description:

The secondary objectives of this study are:

  • to assess symptoms of anxiety (HADS ≥ 8) and depression (HADS ≥ 8) among relatives of ICU patients three months after discharge
  • to assess what relatives felt vis-à-vis the information process
  • describe the number and duration of interviews with participants
  • to compare variables between the groups "spouses" and "other relatives".

    • satisfaction
    • number and duration of interviews
    • HADS questionnaire
    • The scale Edmunton
    • an internal questionnaire
    • IES-R score
    • level of mental well-being: WEMWBS
  • to describe the completeness of the study
  • to test the hypothesis that the development of symptoms related to physical manifestations of anxiety and depression predicts the development of post-traumatic stress at 3 months.
  • to assess the impact of the various forms of stress during hospitalization.
