Early mobilisation of mechanically ventilated adults in intensive care: implementation of practice change and benchmarking of practice
MetadataShow full item record
Early mobilisation of mechanically ventilated adults is thought to attenuate the weakness experienced by many patients receiving treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU). This study has established feasibility of implementation, adverse event rates associated with the therapy and barriers to its implementation. It is the first study to examine early mobilisation in a heterogeneous ICU patient population at a local, national and international level.
