Pyjama-free zones

Research output: Contribution to journalMagazine ArticleEducation


The premise of #EndPJparalysis is remarkably simple and chimes with, and amplifies, the great work that physiotherapists do on a daily basis: get patients up, dressed and moving every day while in hospital. This significantly reduces the risks associated with prolonged bed rest, including sarcopenia, deep vein thrombosis, reduced peristalsis, constipation, lethargy and chest infections. The only remarkable thing about it is that it's also something that Dr Richard Asher was writing about in the British Medical Journal back in 1947!
