Aster DM Healthcare has launched a comprehensive post-COVID care package to enable complete recovery and rehabilitation of COVID cured patients. The Aster Recovery to Rehabilitation package aims at providing the required comprehensive medical and specialised care to patients who have shown symptoms that may even linger or recur for weeks or months following the initial recovery, and some may even develop lasting health effects. The package will assist complete and quicker recovery of the patients and is designed considering all COVID patients from mild to severe cases.
The patients will undergo a primary evaluation and will be referred to super-specialists (cardiology/ pulmonology/ psychiatrist/ rheumatology) on the basis of condition and treatment required. The primarily evaluation will include physical evaluation, chronic fatigue assessment, and a psychology valuation. Further, radiology and laboratory investigations (inflammation, cardiac, pulmonary and general health) will be carried out along with a consultation with the general physician. A diet and physiotherapy plan will be provided to assist the patients during the recovery.
Commenting on the launch, Dr Harish Pillai, CEO, Aster India said, “After recovering from COVID-19, many patients find themselves enduring the post COVID-19 symptoms. These symptoms mount a challenge in physical and mental well-being and may prevent the resumption of a normal healthy life. The package is designed while keeping in mind the various symptoms COVID-19 patients have displayed and will provide the needed care and assistance in their proper and faster recovery.”
Patients can avail of the package at any of the Aster DM Healthcare hospitals in India.
