Purpose: This study was conducted to identify the factors that influence low back pain in nurses in Intensive Care Units (ICUs).
Methods: A descriptive-correlational design was used, with a convenience sample of 116 nurses from one university hospital in Seoul. The data collected were processed using SPSS Window 17.0 Program for actual numbers and percentages, differences in the dependent variable according to general characteristics, and mean, standard deviations, correlation coefficients and multiple regression analysis.
Results: The factor influencing low back pain in nurses in ICUs was functional ability (${beta}$=.652). This one factor explained 41.9% of low back pain in nurses in ICUs.
Conclusion: These results show that functional ability was related to nurses' low back pain in nurses in ICUs. These results further suggest that more research is needed to develop program involving functional ability to prevent and management of low back pain in nurses in ICUs.
