Impact of a Progressive Mobility Program on the Functional Status, Respiratory and Muscular Systems of ICU Patients

Patients who participated in an ICU mobility program had better functional status at discharge from the ICU.

The other benefits of the program included better performance in the mobility tests and improved maximum voluntary ventilation performance.

49 patients in the control group and 50 patients were analyzed in the intervention group.

The data showed patients with better functional status and more functionally independent patients in the intervention group compared with those in the control group.

The control group underwent the conventional treatment without a pre-established routine.
