Physical activity and movement: A guideline for critically ill adults offers 16 recommendations to guide the development of a physical activity and movement (PAM) program for critically ill adult intensive care unit (ICU) patients from the time of admission until discharge.
The guideline is based on three clinical health questions:
- How can critically ill adult patients in ICU be safely mobilised?
- What are the strategies for safely mobilising a patient within an adult ICU?
- What are the barriers to safe mobilisation of patients in an adult ICU?
