The prognosis looks bad sir as the ventilator requirement is constant. She cant walk as you say and the ribs are pressing onto the lungs.
A good prognostic marker would be her saturation and the oxygen content checked by areterial blood gases. If the co2 is high then the prognosis becomes more grave
I am really sorry as i cant help much from here
