Treatment and rehabilitation optimization of patients with COVID-19
Keywords:rehabilitation, COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, recovery
Background. During the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more patients need rehabilitation. The purpose of the study is to determine the basic principles of patient rehabilitation at different periods of COVID-19. Materials and methods. The research materials were international literary sources (15 items), international normative documents (3 items). The bibliosemantic method of research, methods of systems approach and content analysis were used. Results. Today, countries around the world are in various stages of a pandemic, and many countries are entering a post-COVID-19 phase. People who suffer from the effects of this disease may face long-term disability and disability. The extent and duration of possible functional impairment and disability are still unknown, but it is clear that these patients will need rehabilitation during all periods of the disease. Persistent symptoms are common with COVID-19, including shortness of breath, chest pain and cough. Physical, psychological (eg, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder) and cognitive (eg, memory and concentration impairment) symptoms may occur in some cases. Surveillance focuses on identifying and treating acute complications in the early period of COVID-19, while follow-up focuses on evaluating and treating persistent symptoms. Conclusions. The significant duration of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in the number of people requiring rehabilitation. Some aspects of convalescence may be unique to COVID-19, but are in many ways similar to those found in other infectious and non-infectious diseases.
