Dr. Dixita Nanda | Dr. Parita Dave [2]

Abstract: COVID-19 is caused by novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is the current pandemic. Persisting symptoms with subsequent progression to poor functional status have been reported in a substantial proportion of these patients. The ?Post-COVID-19 Functional Status (PCFS) Scale? is used as outcome measure to evaluate the consequences of COVID-19 and their effect on functional status. Aim of the study to find out the test-retest reliability of the post COVID-19 functional status (PCFS) scale and to find out the impact of SARS COV-2 on functional status. The study is carried out in 151 individuals with a recovered SARSCOV-2. People aged between 30-45 years are taken & PCFS scale has been given. Same group of people is again taken & given the same scale at 48hour interval. Data was analysed in SPSS version 20. The Mean age of participants was (37.226) with involvement of 38% males and 62% females. The test retest reliability of the PCFS was excellent ICC (0.939-0.779) and according to this data GRADE 1 involvement was maximum with 47 % and GRADE 0 & GRADE D involvement was minimum with no involvement. The study conclude post COVID-19 functional status (PCFS) scale is having excellent test retest reliability and functional status affection is one of the most common presenting complaints in individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2.
