Abstract

Diagnosis and resuscitation for critically ill patients have improved in the last 25 years, and survival has also increased. With improvements in mortality, the field of critical care has seen increased opportunities to improve posthospital quality of life for survivors of critical illness. This article focuses particularly on how mobilization may improve quality of life for patients.
