This 75-minute session will provide an overview of the physiotherapy management of patients diagnosed with COVID-19, across the continuum of care.
The clinical features of COVID-19 are currently understood to parallel those of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The speakers will extrapolate from what is known about the management of ARDS to discuss the physiotherapist’s role in acute and critical care, post-ICU recovery and long-term management of COVID-19.
