Clinical and Psychologic Effects of Early Mobilization in Patients Treated in a Neurologic ICU: A Comparative Study
Klein K, et al. | Critical Care Medicine | 2014

In this study in Cleveland Clinic's Neuro ICU, an early mobility program was used to mobilize 637 patients during a pre/post study. The authors found that with an early mobility program, patients had shorter ICU and hospital length of stay (LOS), were more likely to be discharged home, and had fewer complications including decreased bloodstream infections, hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, and anxiety.
