In brief: Depends why in ICU

It all depends on why they are in the intensive care unit.
Most patients do recover, but certainly there are very ill patients that do not recover after being in the icu. There are also those that have conditions that would not lead to a good quality of life. Those patients do not recover. But overall, the majority of ICU patients recover.
