Annex 2. Behavioral Pain Scale
Table A2. Behavioral Pain Scale (BPS) 
|Face||Facial muscles are relaxed||Mimic muscles are tense, frowning||Clenched jaws, pain grimace||0–2|
|Anxiety||Patient is relaxed, movements are normal||Rare fidget movements, changes body position||Often fidget movements, including head, constant changes of body position||0–2|

|General score: (0–10)||0-10|
The BPS is not validated in Russia.
Annex 3. Neonatal Infant Pain Scale
Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS) for newborns/infants to 1 years old is a behavioral tool for the evaluation of pain in undercarried and full-tern newborns.
Table A3. Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS) 
|Parameter||Score 0||Score 1||Score 2||Score|
|Facial expression||Relaxed muscles. Restful face, neutral expression||Grimace. Tight facial muscles, furrowed forehead, brows, chin, and jaw (negative face expression — nose, mouth, brows)||–|
|Cry*||No cry, quiet||Whimper, mild moaning, intermittent||Vigorous crying, loud scream, shrill, continuous|
|Breathing pattern||Relaxed, usual pattern for this infant||Visual change in breathing. Irregular air inhalation, faster than usual, gagging, breath holding||–|
|Arms||Relaxed, no muscular rigidity, occasional random movements of arms||Arms are flexed/extended. Tense, straight arms, rigid and/or rapid extension, flexion.||–|
|Legs||Relaxed. No muscular rigidity, occasional random movements||Flexed/extended legs. Tense, straight legs. Rigid or rapid extension, flexion.||–|
|State of Arousal||Sleeping/awake. Quiet, peaceful sleeping with occasional random leg movements||Fussy, alert, restless, and thrashing movements||–|
The intensity of pain is expressed as a total score for each of the six parameters; the minimal score is 0, the maximal possible is 7 (Lawrence et al., 1993). Score > 3 indicates pain. The scale is not validated in Russia.
* Silent crying can be summed if a child is intubated and crying is clear by the movement of mouth and face.
Annex 4. Medical Research Council Scale
Table A4. Medical Research Council Scale (MRC) 
|Score||Muscular Strength||Right arm||Right leg||Left arm||Left leg|
|0||No movement is observed|
|1||A trace or flicker is palpated in the muscle. Visually — no movement|
|2||Movement is possible only when the resistance of the gravity is removed|
|3||Movement against gravity is possible|
|4||Muscle contraction against gravity and resistance but weaker than on the healthy side|
|5||Normal muscular strength|
This scale had various titles. In Russia, it is known as neurological scale of muscular strength.
The pain evaluation is performed by a reanimatologist, ICU nurse, physician (specialist in physical rehabilitation), physical and rehabilitation medicine specialist, neurologist, orthopedic traumatologist.
Conditions of pain evaluation. If the patient is unconscious, objective evaluation is not possible by this scale. If a patient has an expressed cognitive deficit or speaking impairments, it is necessary to monitor the patient and how their limbs move. These data will be used for the evaluation. Besides, alternative sources of communication can be used.
This scale can be used to evaluate the strength of any muscle. The testing of all muscles is based on the principles of manual muscular testing. The specialist should know the position of the tested body and what movement can maximally load the tested muscles. The specialist ensures the antagonist muscles to be excluded from the movement and the tested muscle to be maximally involved in the movement.
Interpreting the obtained data for ICU patients without CNS impairments:
Score 17–20 — no signs of PICS
Score 12–16 — signs of PICS
Score 0–11 — myoplegia or tetraparesis (requires the exclusion of acute CNS pathology)
Annex 5. Rapid shallow breathing index (Tobin index)
Tobin Index  is an index of rapid shallow breathing (RSBI). RSBI parameter is calculated by the formula:
RSBI = f/Vt,
where in f is the respiratory rate (per minute); Vt — breathing capacity (L).
During the calculation of RSBI, the patients breathes without additional help or during ventilation with minimal pressure (< 5 cm H2O) and the doctor measures the breathing volume and RR of the patient. This evaluation is performed with no mechanical help from CMV or other equipment to the patient. The normal Tobin Index is < 105 breaths/min/L. If RSBI is < 100, the patient can be extubated, the possibility of successful transfer to spontaneous breathing without complications is 80–95 %. If RSBI > 120, the patient will need further respiratory support and the diagnosis of ICU-acquired weakness can be established.
Annex 6. 3-ounce Water Swallow Test [100, 101]
Annex 7. Modified Rivermead Mobility Index for ICU patients (mRMI-ICU)
Original name: In Russian: “индекс мобильности Ривермид”. In the Russian Federation, the scale is not validated.
Rivermead Mobility Index is a simple and available test that evaluates not only walking but also patient’s mobility. To be applied in ICU, the index was modified several times (F.M. Collen et al., 1991; D. Wade, 1992, C. Hodgson, 2014; А.А. Belkina, 2014).
Table A7. Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (mRMI-ICU) 
|0||Immobile in bed||A patient is not able to change the position in bed. The patient is passively mobilized by medical personnel.||P|
|1||Active in the bed||A patient can turn from the back to a side without assistance, cyclic kinesiotraining, exercises with assistance. Patient cannot get out of the bed without help.||P|
|2||Passive sitting up without keeping balance||A patient can be transferred to a sitting position in the bed or chair with back support with an elevator or personnel assistance. The patient cannot sit on the edge of the bed.||P|
|3||Active-passive sitting up on the edge of the bed with balance keeping||A patient can sit up from a lying position on the edge of the bed and keep balance for 10 seconds with or without assistance.||P|
|4||Changing position from sitting to standing||A patient can stand up and keep standing with the help of hands, stander, or tilt-table||P|
|5||Transfer||A patient can be transferred from the bed into a chair and back with assistance.||P|
|6||Walking in place||A patient can lift each leg 2 times and transfer the center of gravity on the opposite leg.||P|
|7||Walking||A patient can make 2 steps with a high walker or bilateral assistance.||P|
Comment. mRMI-ICU value corresponds to the score of doctor’s positive assessment of the patient on each parameter.
Interpretation. The index can score from 0 (inability to make any movements) to 15 (ability to run 10 m). In the modification proposed for ICU patients, the normal score is 7.
Annex 8. Express-test of cognitive status — Hodkinson’s Mental Abilities Express Test
Hodkinson’s Mental Abilities Test — 10 (AMT-10) is used to assess three cognitive domains. Each correct answer scores 1. The threshold score is ≤ 6. Questions 2–6 are asked to assess the patient’s orientation in time, place, and personality. Questions 1, 7–9 are asked for the assessment of memory and general level of knowledge. Question 10 (and 1) is asked for the assessment of attention.
Table A8. Hodkinson’s Mental Abilities Express Test 
|Date and year of birth||1|
|Time of the day (approximately)||1|
|Current date (day, month, year)||1|
|Current place (hospital, department)||1|
|Current time of the year||1|
|Name of the wife (husband, children)||1|
|Name of the President||1|
|Repeat the doctor’s name (Doctor needs to introduce themselves first)||1|
|To count down from 10 (corrections are acceptable if they are made by the patient themselves)||1|
Score 10 is a norm (1 point for each question).
Annex 9. Assessment of PICS syndrome based on PICS index

Annex 13. Passive leg raising test
PLR (passive leg raising test) is a test based on leg raising for the assessment of the volume status [56, 57].
Physiologically, the test is based on the involvement of the patient’s blood volume (autotransfusion). This test precisely predicts an increase in the cardiac output of the blood from the lower limb veins to the right sections of the heart, which is around 300 ml.
The peculiarity of this test is in its absolute reversibility and possibility to be performed both in patients with preserved spontaneous breathing and those that are on CMV. There are no contraindications to PLR test in patients with heart rhythm disorders as well as during inotropic and/or vasopressor support.
Method: stretched out legs are raised to at least 600 in a patient who is horizontally lying on the back. The parameters of hemodynamic (BP, HR, central venous pressure) are registered before the raising and in the highest point.
The test is positive if there is an increase in BP and (or) HR by 10 %, CVP — by 2 mmHg from the initial level. Positive test is a contraindication for the start of RehabICU (detailed information at https://rehabrus.ru/Docs/2021/MR-ReabIT_3.0.pdf).
