Cardiac Rehab for COVID Long-Haul

Submitted by: Caleb Ross, MS – Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha Children’s received some national recognition because they have enrolled 4 COVID Long-Haulers into their cardiac rehab program. Patients present with chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, etc. for months! Omaha Children’s has had great success improving their fitness levels and lowering their perceived symptoms.

Is anyone else rehabbing COVID Long-Haulers?

Introduction

Founded in 2021, the Global Coalition for Fitness and CHD is a group of healthcare providers from across the globe dedicated to impacting overall fitness of body and mind for patients living with congenital heart disease (CHD).  Pediatric cardiac rehabilitation is an emerging field with great promise. It is time to collaborate, research, share experiences, and learn together in an effort to optimize exercise intervention programs that help patients with congenital heart disease reach their full potential.  Together we can achieve this and make a positive impact in this field!
