Early Mobilization Reduces Duration of Mechanical Ventilation and Intensive Care Unit Stay in Patients With ARF

The introduction of early mobilization for patients with mechanical ventilation (MV) in the ICU shortened MV durations and ICU stays. A multidisciplinary team that includes the patient’s family can work together to improve the patient’s clinical outcomes. We enrolled 63 patients in the before protocol group and 90 in the after protocol group. The 2 groups were well matched in age, sex, body height, body weight, body mass index, disease severity, cause of intubation, number of comorbidities, and most underlying diseases.
