Lecture Summary

Critical illness can contribute to a decline in physical condition with many patients experiencing decreased physical functioning for months following recovery from critical illness. Muscle loss and reduced function contribute to this decline in physical function and there is potential for optimal nutrition in combination with early exercise to promote maintenance of muscle mass and function. Ensuring prescribed nutrition and mobilisation goals are met during the hospital stay is challenging and families can support and encourage patients with meeting these goals, so that the potential for physical recovery is optimised.
