"Study looking at early exercise in burn patients"
7 to 60 years old
Healthy Volunteers:
burn, burn rehabilitation, exercise
Other study
This study will look at early in-hospital exercise as an addition to current standard of care (SOC). We are doing this study to compare what happens between a program of movement/exercise (from now on we will call this MP10) during acute care (includes days in the ICU, days in-hospital as inpatient) added to existing usual care or standard of care (SOC) programs to those of the existing SOC alone. We think that MP10 added to SOC will result in more benefits and outcomes than SOC alone. We think that SOC plus MP10 will be better than SOC alone in lowering the number of days in the hospital, number of days in the burn ICU, the number of days on the mechanical ventilator, increasing muscle mass and exercise function, and improving mental health.
