PENFUP FASE 2, It is a multicenter study by parallel conglomerates, planned in order to evaluate the efficacy between two levels of frequency of postural change in intensive care units for adults of hospitals in various regions of Colombia.


Taking into account a design effect of 6.7, Investigators planned to include 150 participants from each ICU. Investigators did calculate that a total of 22 ICUs are required, in which 11 will be assigned to the low frequency and 11 will be assigned to a high frequency group of postural change until obtaining a total of 1,650 patients in each arm of the study and a total of 3,300 participants in the study.
