This is a critical abstract of an economic evaluation that meets the criteria for inclusion on NHS EED. Each abstract contains a brief summary of the methods, the results and conclusions followed by a detailed critical assessment on the reliability of the study and the conclusions drawn.
This study examined the clinical and economic impact of a mobility protocol, based on physical therapy, versus the usual care, for patients with acute respiratory failure in an intensive care unit. The authors concluded that the protocol led to an earlier start of physical therapy and a shorter hospital stay, without compromising the quality of care or increasing the hospital costs. The clinical analysis was satisfactory, but the economic information was limited. The authors’ conclusions appear to be appropriate.
