Physical Therapy Management of Patients with ICU-Acquired Weakness
Published by Minnesota Physical Therapy Association

Current literature supports the importance of early mobility for ICU patients with a critical illness, but there is limited education regarding physical therapy management for this population. This course will provide a brief background on early mobility literature, but will primarily focus on diagnosis, outcomes assessments, and interventions for patients with ICU-acquired weakness. Education will be tied to clinical scenarios for the direct application of knowledge.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Describe etiology, risk factors, and defining clinical presentation of ICU-acquired weakness.
  2. Identify appropriate, evidence-based interventions from ICU admission through hospital discharge.
  3. Discuss various outcomes assessments to be used throughout the continuum of care for patients with ICU-acquired weakness.
