Understanding Post-COVID Shortness of Breath

Post-COVID shortness of breath, also known as post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC), is a common symptom experienced by individuals who have recovered from COVID-19. This lingering respiratory impairment can greatly impact daily activities and overall well-being.

At Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine, we recognize the importance of addressing post-COVID shortness of breath promptly and effectively. Our team of highly skilled medical professionals utilizes evidence-based approaches to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Treatment Options

Our comprehensive post-COVID shortness of breath treatment program incorporates a range of modalities to address various factors contributing to respiratory impairment. These may include:

1. Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a crucial component of our treatment approach. This structured program combines supervised exercises, education, and support to improve lung function, enhance endurance, and alleviate symptoms of shortness of breath.

2. Medication Management

Medication may be prescribed to manage underlying conditions that contribute to post-COVID shortness of breath. Our experienced clinicians carefully evaluate each patient's medical history and devise an appropriate medication regimen to optimize respiratory function.

3. Breathing Techniques and Strategies

Our skilled respiratory therapists teach patients specific breathing techniques and strategies to help manage and reduce shortness of breath symptoms. These techniques may include diaphragmatic breathing, pursed-lip breathing, and inspiratory muscle training.

4. Nutritional Support

Proper nutrition plays a significant role in supporting overall respiratory health. Our registered dietitians work closely with patients to develop personalized diet plans that promote lung function, strengthen the immune system, and optimize recovery.

5. Stress and Anxiety Management

Post-COVID shortness of breath can be exacerbated by stress and anxiety. Our team provides counseling and relaxation techniques to help patients effectively manage their emotional well-being and minimize respiratory distress related to psychological factors.
