Effect of Early Activity Combined with Early Nutrition on Acquired Weakness in ICU Patients

Effect of Early Activity Combined with Early Nutrition on Acquired Weakness in ICU Patients

This trial has the potential to identify a novel strategy for preventing or managing ICU-AW. The findings may increase the clinical knowledge about nutrition and mobilization interventions for people with ICU-AW, and contribute to the formation of practice guidelines for managing this condition.

This is a 3-arm, parallel, randomized controlled trial including an estimated 147 critically ill patients aged ≥18 years recruited from the ICUs of 2 hospitals in Heilongjiang, China.

Patients will be prospectively randomized 1:1:1 to receive early mobilization, early nutrition combined with early mobilization, or standard care (minimal exercises, experience-based initiation and enrollment of nutrition support).

Outcomes are assessed at ICU discharge after baseline.
