The lecture duration is 31min.
The quality of survival for patients after intensive care unit (ICU) admission is a major health challenge that has been described as the defining challenge for critically ill in the 21st century. ICU survivors may have delayed and compromised functional recovery, which can persist for months or years. Preliminary evidence suggests critically ill patients admitted to ICU who are expected to require prolonged mechanical ventilation may benefit from early activity and mobilisation. However, the type of activities, the timing of the intervention and an effective dose remains unclear. This talk will review the latest evidence.
