The muscle wasting and loss of muscle function associated with critical illness and intensive care have significant negative consequences for weaning from the respirator, duration of hospital stay, and quality of life for long periods after hospital discharge. There is, accordingly, a significant demand for focused research aiming at improving our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the impaired neuromuscular function in intensive care unit (ICU) patients. However, the study of… CONTINUE READING
