dc.description.abstractPatients in the intensive care unit that are mechanically ventilated are at risk for many negative outcomes that can be detrimental to their health. Mechanically ventilated patients are often placed on paralytics, sedatives, and opioids. These medications along with being on a ventilator can lead to impaired physical function, altered mental status, and decreased quality of life. Early interventions and assessments such as sedation vacations, regular spontaneous breathing trials, early mobility, and assessing neurological status can greatly increase a patient’s quality of life and physical function.en_US
