Critical illness rehabilitation (CG83)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'rehabilitation after critical illness'
The advice in the NICE guideline covers the care of:
- adults who, as a result of critical illness, have stayed in critical care and need rehabilitation.
It does not specifically look at the care of:
- adults who are having treatment for symptoms and pain in the final stages of a terminal illness
- adults whose rehabilitation needs are already routinely assessed and delivered as part of their care, for example, patients who have brief stays in critical care units for immediate postoperative care after major elective surgery, and patients with conditions for which published guidelines already exist – such as head injury, heart attack and stroke.
