After COVID-19 rehabilitation

Botulinum therapy
Rehabilitation after suffering a coronavirus infection

Most COVID-19 survivors require rehabilitation, regardless of the severity of the disease. It is already well known that a large number of those who have been ill exhibit post-COVID health problems such as the following:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Prolonged fever
  • Loss or change in taste and smell
  • Neurological disorders (stroke, headaches, dizziness, sleep problems, poor memory, low concentration)
  • Cardiac problems (rapid or irregular heartbeat, myocarditis, pericarditis)
  • Shortness of breath (often with minimal exertion)
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Allergic reactions
  • Hair loss.
A thorough examination of the patient’s condition in the pulmonology department includes the determination of inflammation coefficients in the respiratory tract (determination of the level of exhaled nitric oxide, using cutting-edge technology), blood gas analysis, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure and pulse, whole body plethysmography (advanced lung function examination) with and without diffusion measurement based on drug testing (bronchodilator use and/or provocation), lung CT by appointment. 
Given the variety of clinical manifestations, the rehabilitation program after COVID is developed individually, depending on the results of the examinations. Rehabilitation programs are run by a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals.
 
Together with the Department of Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy, an individual plan for comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation is developed.
Rehabilitation after COVID can be carried out both inpatient and outpatient.
