ABSTRACT

Critical illness polyneuropathy occurs in patients with severe acute aggression that is life-threatening and is managed in an intensive care unit. It most often affects patients free from any previous neurological pathology. The two main risk factors are severe multi-organ failure and muscle immobilization. This complication can be prevented by early passive and active rehabilitation programs even in ventilated patients.
