 Background: This systematic review studied the effectiveness of occupational therapy intervention by patients in an adult intensive care unit (ICU). Methods: Two Japanese and four major English databases were used in a select randomized controlled trial (RCT) for this review. Results: From 26 screened abstracts, 3 RCTs were found. The subjects were 2 studies while entering the ICU, and 1 study after leaving the ICU. All were carried out in conjunction with physical therapy. The outcomes of occupational therapy practice have been evaluated by the number of days free of ventilators, activities of daily living, delirium, cognitive function, and grip strength. Conclusion: It is important to research the increase and effectiveness of occupational therapy reports related to ICU.
