Patients who are critically ill with COVID-19 requiring life support in an intensive care unit (ICU) have increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Currently the ICU community does not know what effect the disease, the ICU admission, physiotherapy interventions and life support have on their long-term quality of life and whether they can return to their pre-illness level of function following ICU.
COVID-Recovery will describe the physiotherapy interventions delivered to critically ill patients with COVID-19. In survivors, COVID-Recovery will utilise telephone follow-up of ICU survivors to assess disability-free survival and quality of life at 6 months after ICU admission. Additionally, COVID-Recovery will identify if there are predictors of disability-free survival. COVID-Recovery will aim to select up to 300 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 from ICUs in Australia. If they survive to hospital discharge, patients will be invited to receive a telephone questionnaire at 6 months after the ICU admission that aims to assess their long-term outcomes, including physical, cognitive and emotional function, quality of life, and whether they have been able to return to work following ICU discharge.
COVID-Recovery will also aim to investigate the human aspect of COVID-19 by further investigating a sub-set of patients. COVID-Recovery will recruit between 15-30 of these patients and a family member, so COVID-Recovery can explore the patient experience of being admitted to the ICU and treated for COVID-19, as well as illuminate and explore the experience of having a close relative admitted and treated for COVID-19.
