ICU patients are exposed to adverse events, which are defined as unintended complications but are preventable.
To identify the adverse effects on the application of the Prófisio Functional Physical Therapy Protocol in critical patients.
The Prófisio Functional Physical Therapy Protocol
A. COGNITIVE CHANGES
Outside the ICU ride.
B. COGNITIVE PRESERVED
Prevention of deep vein thrombosis (PTVP);
Outside the ICU ride.
Transfer of weight training;
check specific contraindications.
At each level adding exercise described in the table
A total of 1144 interventions were observed, where only seven (0.61%) showed adverse events. Of the seven only adverse effects, three were classified as light-loss of electrodes of cardiac monitoring-and four were classified as moderate-the unscheduled removal of the gavage, hypotension, drop and loss of surgical drain. The hemodynamic variables did not suffer significant alterations.
The application of the Prófisio Functional Physical Therapy Protocol showed itself to be safe and with a low risk of adverse effects, when applied to critical patients.
