Admission into ICU and patient profile influences utilization of physiotherapy services. Evidence supporting the role of physiotherapy in critically ill patients continues to grow; but there seems to be lack of published information on utilization of physiotherapy services among critically ill patients in a resource–limited setting. This retrospective study was aimed at describing admission profile and utilization of physiotherapy services in a general ICU.Clinical notes of 1,117 patients admitted into the general ICU of a resource–limited tertiary healthcare institution between June 2011 and June 2013 were reviewed. Information obtained from the clinical notes was cross–checked with other clinical documents such as nursing register, admission registers and physiotherapy service notes. Data were summarized in frequency and percentages. Of the 1,177 (52% male; 48% female) patient notes reviewed, 16% recieved any form of physiotherapy care. Though the patients who had general surgery accounted for the highest ICU admission (39%), the highest utilization of physiotherapy care was by neurosurgery patients (62%). Mobilisation exercises and chest physiotherapy were the most common form of physiotherapy services rendered.Utilization of physiotherapy in this study was low compared with developed countries, though the physiotherapy services are similar.
