BACKGROUND: Long-term outcomes after acute medical and surgical illness are largely unknown.
AIM: To describe cognitive and physical function, health-related quality of life and risk of anxiety and depression after acute illness.
DESIGN: Prospective cohort study.
METHODS: Home visit at three and twelve months measuring: Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS), Chelsea Critical Care Physical Assessment tool, Short Form Health Survey, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and Trail Making Test.
RESULTS: Of 101 included patients, 60 were visited at three and 36 at twelve months. The RBANS value was 84 (69-96) at three months and 88 (69-101) at twelve months.
CONCLUSIONS: We found a moderately reduced cognitive function three and twelve months after acute illness.
