Each year, about 86,000 adults are admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) in the Netherlands. The advancements in critical care in the last decades have resulted in higher survival rates, despite an ageing population and an increased severity of illness. However, surviving critical illness has shown to be associated with a wide range of long-lasting negative health outcomes. Early rehabilitation in the ICU is beneficial in reducing physical impairments and ICU and hospital length of stay. Daniela Dettling-Ihnenfeldt explores the course and prognosis of functioning in ICU survivors, and investigates means for early identification of patients with need for rehabilitation care.
