What you'll learn

The COVID-19 disease is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus – a type of Coronavirus. One of the main manifestations of this infection is the varying degree of lung involvement, causing a spectrum of illness from mild lower respiratory tract infection to severe Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). read more »»

One of the critical clinical parameters is to identify hypoxia early to initiate a higher level of care at the earliest. However, the presence of silent or latent hypoxia has made this task a challenge. A simple 6-minute walk test (6MWT) to look for inducible hypoxia for a patient who looks comfortable and is not hypoxic at rest helps detect hypoxia and initiate early higher-level care. The 6MWT also aids in looking for discharge preparedness of patients.

This course aims to provide the learners with an understanding of the simple tool with immense clinical applicability to ensure the safe care of COVID 19 patients.
