Covid Rehab - The Need Of The Hour

Did you know that 75% of COVID patients tend to experience post-COVID distress after getting discharged from the hospital? Yes! Most of the COVID-19 survivors go through a chain of mental, cognitive, and physical problems after their initial recovery.

Who Will Need COVID Rehab?

COVID patients who just got discharged from the hospital after undergoing acute care treatments.
COVID patients with comorbidities like hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and lung or heart diseases.
COVID patients who still experience symptoms like depression, dysphagia, anxiety, and fatigue even after getting discharged from the hospital.

Why Is COVID Rehab Required?

COVID rehabilitation and recovery care is a systematic, multidisciplinary healthcare program. It aims to offer therapeutic interventions and customised education to COVID patients after they undergo acute care management. At HAMSA, our COVID Rehab program is designed in such a way that it is individualised to meet the specific needs of our patients. Let us now take a look at why COVID Rehab is important:

Prevent Complications

COVID patients might experience long term lung complications as an after effect of the disease. Complications like lung tissue alterations, bronchiectasis, and vascular thickening can persist after COVID. Rehab can help you deal with such complications in an effective way.

Respiratory Dysfunctions

Respiratory functioning and normal gas exchange can be affected due to COVID. But, our COVID rehab will help you manage these respiratory dysfunctions and breathe normally and easily as before.

Prevent Complications

A long term stay in the ICU can cause physical and emotional weakness in an individual. The trauma of facing the disease and going through the treatments may not be easy for everyone. At HAMSA, we offer you the best support to help you walk back to live happily and peacefully.

Post-Traumatic Disorder

COVID can cause cognitive impairment in ARDS (Acute Respiratory Disorders) survivors after being discharged from the hospital. This can lead to post-traumatic stress disorders and depression. COVID Rehab helps to deal with it and embrace life all over again.

Critical Side Effects

COVID survivors are more prone to side effects like fatigue and difficulty moving around even if they didn't reach the critical state. Hence, such people will need COVID rehab to fight the side effects and reclaim normal life.
