Abstract: Introduction: Despite the evolution of early mobilization in Intensive Care Units, this procedure is still underused or underutilized worldwide. Research on the subject is carried out only in the context of trained professionals, with no mention of the subject in the academic environment. Objective: To assess whether the inclusion of an assessment guide for early mobilization can positively interfere in bedside student practice. Methods: Before and after study carried out with Physiotherapy students from August to November 2018. Results: There was significance in neurological assessments, heart rate, blood pressure, use of vasoactive drugs, ventilatory parameters, pulse saturation and pulmonary auscultation. Discussion: The present study shows significant responses in several aspects, but leaves gaps to be answered in the use of this tool in the practice scenario. Conclusion: The simplified guide can be a tool of the active methodology for low cost practice scenarios.
