Abstract

Objective: Every patient admitted to intensive care unit passes through a period in which intensive care requires obligatory bed rest. This leads to a longer duration of mechanical ventilation, intensive care and hospital stay, development of venous thromboembolism and increased mortality. Early mobilization is thought to reduce intensive care unit stay and mortality in intensive care patients, increasing oxygen transport and leading to fewer pulmonary complications. In our study, it was aimed to investigate the effect of in-bed and out-of-bed early mobilization on intensive care patient hemodynamics.
