Electrical stimulation could zap the need for some physical therapy
WESA-FM
A study completed at Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, Pa., could lead to physical therapy sessions being replaced with a device patients would use at home. The study was done to see if electrical muscle stimulation, or EMS, is as effective as standard physical therapy in helping patients recover from joint replacement surgery. EMS uses electrical impulses to stimulate the body's natural process of voluntary muscular contractions. When an electrical impulse is applied to the motor nerve, it prompts muscle contraction, resulting in a workout with less risk of injury, without muscle fatigue and with pain equivalent to a mild bee sting.

Study: Physical therapy beneficial to critically ill patients
PTinMotion
According to a new systematic review of the evidence base for exercise in critically ill patients, physical therapy in the ICU appears to confer significant benefit in improving quality of life, physical function and peripheral and respiratory muscle strength; increasing ventilator-free days; and decreasing hospital and ICU stay. "It is apparent that survivors of critical illness experience poor physical, functional and cognitive outcomes often lasting for years," said the authors of a paper published in Critical Care Medicine, noting that this condition, "post intensive care syndrome," and the related "intensive care unit acquired weakness" can result in major effects on the health and productivity of survivors and caregivers, availability of hospital beds and healthcare costs.

Study authors sought to determine whether or not blood sugar level influenced outcome in TKR. Previous studies have found that poor glycemic control may cause postoperative complications.
