Introduction: Quality of life and functionality of critically ill cancer patients are significantly affected after ICU admission, with changes due to immobility, hemodynamic instability, muscular atrophy, cognitive deficits, psychological difficulties, decreased cardiovascular functional capacity, neurological deleterious effects on the respiratory system. The physiotherapeutic intervention is effective in preventing and reducing the deleterious dysfunctions of immobility, as well as improving the quality of life of the patient during his / her stay in the ICU. Objective: To carry out a systematic review of literature seeking the benefits of early mobilization in intensive care patients. Methodology: Refers to a systematic literature review, approaching the PRISMA methodology, with two independent examiners who analyzed the quality of the study. We selected as inclusion criteria articles in Portuguese, English and Spanish that refer to the topic of early mobilization in intensive care oncology. Documents that do not associate with the proposed theme were excluded from the search. The articles were searched in the databases: VHL, PUBMED, COCHRANE, PEDRO and EBSCO. Results: For the elaboration of the study, 66 articles were found in the total, where only 8 articles were used because they refer to the use of early mobilization in intensive oncologic therapy. Final considerations: Early mobilization in the ICU is essential in the intervention of the multidisciplinary team on the cognitive, physical and functional aspects along with the kinesiotherapeutic progressivity adequate to the individual needs of each patient, providing significant benefits in the prevention of dysfunctions caused by the immobilism syndrome, resulting in the best quality of life for the patient.
