An Exploratory Study of Long-Term Outcome Measures in Critical Illness Survivors: Construct Validity of Physical Activity, Frailty, and Health-Related Quality of Life Measures.
OBJECTIVE: Functional capacity is commonly impaired after critical illness. We sought to clarify the relationship between objective measures of physical activity, self-reported measures of health-related quality of life, ...
Nutritional risk assessment at admission can predict subsequent muscle loss in critically ill patients.
Muscle loss in critically ill patients may be related to nutrition. We study the association between modified NUTrition RIsk in the Critically ill (mNUTRIC) score obtained at admission to intensive care unit (ICU) and ...
Skeletal Muscle Ultrasonography in Nutrition and Functional Outcome Assessment of Critically Ill Children: Experience and Insights From Pediatric Disease and Adult Critical Care Studies [Formula: see text].
(Wiley Online, 2016-12-01)
Evidence suggests that critically ill children develop muscle wasting, which could affect outcomes. Muscle ultrasound has been used to track muscle wasting and association with outcomes in critically ill adults but not ...
Can the critically ill patient generate sufficient energy to facilitate exercise in the ICU?
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2018-03)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Trials of physical rehabilitation post critical illness have yet to deliver improved health-related quality of life in critical illness survivors. Muscle mass and strength are lost rapidly in critical ...
Functional Outcomes and Physical Impairments in Pediatric Critical Care Survivors: A Scoping Review.
OBJECTIVE: Although more children are surviving critical illness, little is known about long-term physical impairment. This scoping review aims to critically appraise existing literature on functional outcome measurement ...
