Patients that end up in the Intensive Care Unit are extremely ill, stuck in an unfamiliar environment away from their families, and often on life-support or other machines to help them heal. Although they are stuck in bed with a very restricted ability to move, the sooner a patient in ICU can safely start moving the faster they begin to recover. Currently, there is a lot of discussion about when it’s safe to exercise these patients leading to Jemima Boyd’s research.
Jemima is investigating whether we can improve the current guidelines for exercising ICU patients, in order to aid their recovery and get them home to their families sooner.
By comparing the current guidelines to patient care at The Prince Charles Hospital, she will be able to highlight where we can potentially start exercising patients sooner, so they can return to normality.
