Track 24: COVID-19 and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Sars-CoV2 has a high transmission rate with a range of 2-14 days and a mean of 3-7 days. Mathematical modeling shows that mask use with 50% compliance during a viral outbreak can curb the spread with a 50% decrease in prevalence and a 20% decrease in cumulative incidence. Pulmonary rehabilitation should be tailored to each individual patient and should be planned through the careful determination of disease phase, patient-related factors (age, obesity, comorbidities, and complications), exercise timing and intensity, and applicable methods. In the case of close contact, both the patient and the physiotherapist should take precautions due to the risk of infection. The main objective of pulmonary rehabilitation in COVID-19 patients is to improve symptoms with dyspnea, relieve anxiety, reduce complications, minimize disability, preserve function, and improve quality of life.

The consequences of COVID-19 will be specified in each individual and their rehabilitation needs will be specific to these consequences such as:
