While advancements in medical management of patients experiencing respiratory failure have improved their survival rate, neuromuscular and neurocognitive impairments can result in long-term deficits to their functional performance. Increasingly, the critical care community is emphasizing early, aggressive physical and occupational therapy – including progressive mobility – to improve these patients’ outcomes. However, development and implementation of an early progressive mobility program can be challenging for the interdisciplinary team. This webinar will discuss the long-term outcomes of critical illness survivors, evidence surrounding the importance of early progressive mobility in the ICU and common obstacles faced when creating or improving these programs.
