PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC INTERVENTION IN HOSPITALIZED PATIENTS WITH COVID-19: AN INTEGRATIVE REVIEW

At the end of 2019, a new disease caused by the coronavirus emerged, which was identified after a series of cases, which can lead to several complications in severe cases of the disease, the need for hospitalization. The objective of the study was to identify the physiotherapeutic resources that can be used in hospitalized patients with COVID-19. This is an integrative literature review carried out in the following databases: Google Scholar, LILACS and SciELO, using the descriptors physiotherapy, COVID-19 and respiratory failure, through the crossing of the Boolean operator AND. Studies published from 2020 to 2022 in Portuguese and English with free access were included. Review studies, newspaper publications, articles that did not address the theme and duplicates were excluded. The results highlighted the importance of physical therapy interventions during the pandemic and that the resources used during this period, such as oxygen therapy, non-invasive and invasive ventilation (NIV), prone position and early mobilization, had a great predominance during hospital rehabilitation. It is concluded that the physiotherapeutic strategies applied to hospitalized patients with COVID19 are safe and bring benefits for the recovery of these individuals.

Abstract:

At the end of 2019, a new disease caused by the coronavirus emerged, which was identified after a series of cases, which can lead to several complications in severe cases of the disease, the need for hospitalization. The objective of the study was to identify the physiotherapeutic resources that can be used in hospitalized patients with COVID-19. This is an integrative literature review carried out in the following databases: Google Scholar, LILACS and SciELO, using the descriptors physiotherapy, COVID-19 and respiratory failure, through the crossing of the Boolean operator AND. Studies published from 2020 to 2022 in Portuguese and English with free access were included. Review studies, newspaper publications, articles that did not address the theme and duplicates were excluded. The results highlighted the importance of physical therapy interventions during the pandemic and that the resources used during this period, such as oxygen therapy, non-invasive and invasive ventilation (NIV), prone position and early mobilization, had a great predominance during hospital rehabilitation. It is concluded that the physiotherapeutic strategies applied to hospitalized patients with COVID19 are safe and bring benefits for the recovery of these individuals.
