dc.description.abstractMultiple predisposing factors are responsible for the development of neuromuscular weakness in a critically ill patient. Thorough history and physical examination is paramount and should not be omitted despite that the majority of patients are unresponsive, confused or sedated. A comprehensive investigation protocol should be followed in all cases of weakness in ICU settings. The spectrum of neuromuscular diseases encountered in ICUs nowadays has rapidly evolved over the last decades. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment is necessary to reduce morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients and reduce the skyrocketing health care expenses.eng
