This study aims to describe the pattern of active and sedentary time in survivors of a
critical illness, at three time points during their hospital admission (awakening in the ICU
after ≥ 5 days of mechanical ventilation, discharge to ward and discharge from hospital).
The specific research objectives are to
1. Determine the duration of active and sedentary parameters including time and bouts in 24
2. Examine changes in the active and sedentary parameters including time and bouts between
time points of awakening and both ICU and hospital discharge.
3. Conduct a preliminary examination of relationships between activity and sedentary
behaviour metrics with measures of muscle strength, physical function and hospital
length of stay.
