Alex Truong, MD is an assistant professor of medicine in the Emory Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. After completing training at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Truong joined the Emory team five years ago. Currently, he serves patients at Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM). He initiated the “Early Mobility in the ICU” program. Ultimately, the program was so well received that it was implemented across the Emory system. Dr. Truong’s multidisciplinary program employs the expertise of nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and critical care medicine to provide a tailored mobility program to all eligible patients in the ICU. The program provides early, aggressive mobility to optimize physical activity for all patients in the ICU, minimize muscle loss and ICU acquired weakness, and potentially decrease ICU length of stay.
