Medical Moment: Recovering from COVID-19
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - For thousands who survived a ventilator, their battle is just beginning.
Now, a more intense rehab is helping get patients home.
Details next in today’s Medical Moment.
There have been 6.6 million cases of COVID-19 in the U.S.
Of those cases, 196,000 have died.
For those who recovered, the path can be a long one.
As Martie Salt reports, the more time spent in the ICU on a ventilator, the harder it is to get back to normal.
Hospitals around the country are revamping their rehab procedures, evaluating patients daily, revising how much rehab patients can handle and even working virtually.
