Early Progressive Mobility in the CVICU: Assessing Current Status
The current study is proposed to assess the frequency and type of progressive mobility procedures currently performed in the CVICU The study will evaluate the type and frequency of progressive mobility orders, whether or not progressive mobility steps are being taken by the nursing teams, define what steps patients are receiving, and record time to first weight bearing. Other outcome measures will be the days of required mechanical ventilation, and current ICU length of stay and cost to treat.
Immobility and Weakness Associated With Long Intensive Care Unit Stays
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Early Progressive Mobility in the CVICU: Assessing Current Status|
- First OOB [ Time Frame: Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The ICU day that the patient is able to stand for at least 1 minute will be assessed.
- ICU LOS [ Time Frame: Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Length of stay will be measured
- Type and Frequency of PM orders [ Time Frame: Daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The type and frequency of Progressive mobility orders will be assessed
|Study Start Date:||July 2010|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
4 months of observation
This will be a descriptive 4 month study of standard care practice. Patients who meet the inclusion / exclusion criteria for study will be enrolled (Waiver of informed consent is requested) and followed for a maximum of 28 days. The type and frequency of progressive mobility orders, whether or not progressive mobility steps are being taken by the nursing teams, define what steps patients are receiving, and record time to first weight bearing will be recorded. Weight bearing will be defined as standing for at least 1 minute. ICU LOS, Ventilator Days will be assessed at ICU discharge for study patients. Barriers to PM procedures will also be assessed.
