    • I saw that there is a collaboration of therapists in Michigan trying to develop increased care for ICU patients. Is there any research or article available on Physical Therapy and effects on ICU patients?

    • You may find some valuable information in a December 2012 PTJ article titled Physical Therapy on the Wards After Early Physical Activity and Mobility in the Intensive Care Unit (http://ptjournal.apta.org/content/92/12/1518.abstract?sid=e4d27a58-ad32-4af3-9f42-1577f03ec85c). In addition, APTA's innovative models of care video series includes an interview with a physical therapist who was instrumental in starting an early physical therapy program for patients in a Houston hospital's ICU (http://www.apta.org/CollaborativeCare/InnovativeModels/ICU/). Also, please see your colleagues' comments left at the January 15 News Now article titled Early Rehab in ICU Generates Net Financial Savings for Hospitals (http://www.apta.org/PTinMotion/NewsNow/2013/1/15/EarlyRehabStudy/).
