Early mobility in critically ill COVID-19 - what lessons have we learned?

Rehabilitation process due to muscle weakness and functional decline during ICU stay.

Arjo, together with Prof. Rik Gosselink - a professor of Respiratory Rehabilitation Science at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium , invites you to discuss how critically ill COVID-19 patients suffer from severe muscle weakness and functional decline during their ICU stay, the early mobility interventions applicable to them and much more.

We will discuss:

  • Critically ill COVID-19 patients also suffer from severe muscle weakness and functional decline during their ICU stay
  • Early mobility started later due to restrictions related to isolation, deep sedation, infection control and prone positioning
  • Most of the early mobility interventions are applicable in COVID-19 patients
  • Restrictions in available equipment and personal protection are barriers
