Can we prevent critical illness related weakness?

Data Synthesis: Ten studies met the inclusion criteria. The current body of evidence does not support the use of any pharmacological agent in this setting, although maintaining euglycemia may reduce the prevalence of critical illness polyneuropathy.

Although efforts to achieve and maintain euglycemia are not generally recommended in critically ill patients there is emerging evidence that it may be beneficial in preventing critical illness related weakness.
