Abstract: The purpose of this study is to identify the patients's perception during their stay in the ICU. The sample was composed by ten patients, who had gone to cardiac surgery. They received psychological assistance only after their discharge from the ICU. The data was obtained throw a qualitative approach, using a content analysis. The results suggest that the patients have a stereotyped view about the ICU, linked with the idea of suffering and death; the nurses play an important role during fragility movements, physical and emotional dependence; the pain, by its subjective nature, individually and emotionally, is inevitable, because it is related to procedure and usually it is associated to physical suffering.
