What are the barriers to mobilising ICU patients in a low-sedation high-mobilisation unit? An observational study
Introduction: Mobilisation of intensive care (ICU) patients reduces ICU and hospital length of stay, attenuates ICU-acquired weakness, and reduces mortality 12 months post-discharge. Despite these benefits, the prevalence of mobilisation in ICU is low (12–54%). In 2012 we showed that our mobilisation rate at The Canberra Hospital (TCH) was high (54%) and our barriers to mobilisation included avoidable factors such as femoral lines and timing of procedures. These barriers may have changed with...[Show more]
