Abstract

Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term functional outcome and health status of patients with critical illness polyneuromyopathy (CIPNM). Method and subjects One hundred and twenty-four consecutive survival intensive care unit patients admitted to a neuro-rehabilitation Unit from January 2003 to December 2007 were identified. Patients with proven CIPNM by the electromyography were prospectively followed. The Barthel and modified Rankin Scales (mRS) were administered to all patients at baseline, discharge and follow-up. The SF-36 questionnaire was administered to ascertain health status. Each patient underwent an individually tailored rehabilitation therapy. Results Forty-two subjects (23M, 19F, mean age 58.4±13.9) were enrolled. Of these, 30 patients were diagnosed electrophysiologically with CIP, six with critical illness myopathy (CIM) and six with a finding combination of CIP and CIM (CIP/CIM) subtype. The mean Barthel scores at baseline, discharge and follow-up were 16.7±8.6, 81.7±16.4 and 86.7±15.9 (P
