A Study of Assessment and Charaterization of Symptoms and Quality of Life in Post Covid Patients

Khushboo Chahwala

Abstract: Objective: To assess characteristics and clinical features in patients recovered from COVID - 19 infection and its effect on quality of life. Methods: Total 60 patients who have recovered from covid pneumonia were enrolled after one month of COVID - 19 infection. These patients were assessed for symptoms like dyspnoea, weakness, cough, fever and others. Quality of life was analysed on the basis of WHOQOL score and symptom assessment was done by SGRQ score. Results: There was a better correlation of dyspnoea with SGRQ total score as well as SGRQ symptom score in post covid patients while cough and weakness does not correlate with SGRQ total score and SGRQ symptom score. WHO score total as well as physical, psychological, social and environmental was not correlated with any of the symptoms. Grading of SGRQ symptom score and total score both at less than 10, 10 to 25, 25 to 50 and more than 50 was correlated with dyspnoea. Conclusion: Post covid patients can also be evaluated by SGRQ symptom score only. WHOQOL is not helpful in evaluation of post covid patients.
