After your treatment tenure, your RT-PCR test is negative and you were declared fit, but are you really free from the claws of COVID ? This disease leaves back some invisible damage which requires attention post your treatment.
For a person who has recovered after quarantining at home, there may have been less intense symptoms, but that does not mean we ignore the after effects on our lungs.
The 6 min Walk Test is widely being recommended to assess your “ As is” status and also measuring improvement during your recovery phase.
It is essentially an exercise based test used to assess endurance levels in patients with pulmonary conditions. The 6MWT is inexpensive, easily applicable, and repeatable as a test that is well-tolerated by patients with pulmonary conditions.
It is a widely accepted valid measure of symptomatic improvement in a patient who has pulmonary conditions. It also helps in planning a personalised intensity program for a patient who has recovered from COVID.
