"Exercise with Music Study", Zhan Liang, PhD, PI

The overall objective of this preliminary study is to explore the feasibility of the Exercise with Music intervention in ICU survivors and refine the study protocol to optimize the intervention.

In addition, we will test its effect on physical function and psychological symptoms. The scientific premise of our study is that providing the individualized Exercise with Music intervention immediately after ICU discharge can prevent further physical and psychological deterioration and motivate ICU survivors to participate in their rehabilitation. ICU survivors will be taught to self-manage exercise through the recorded playlists, which provide exercise instruction tailored to subjects’ musical selection and their exercise capacity.
