Promoting early rehabilitation for pediatric ICU patients.
Dr. Sapna Kudchadkar Introduces PICU Up!
PICU Up! was developed at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center over a 2-year period of methodical protocol implementation and review including pre-and post-launch testing by caregivers in every clinical discipline across the PICU. Study results demonstrated that a bundled intervention to create a healing environment in the PICU with structured activity and mobility is safe, feasible, and may have benefits for short- and long-term outcomes of critically ill children.
