Post-COVID Pulmonary Recovery Care

If you're struggling to recover from respiratory issues after your COVID-19 infection, a new program at UPMC West Shore may be able to help. Eligible patients include anyone who is still experiencing the following symptoms after three months or more since their COVID recovery:

  • cough
  • fatigue
  • cognitive dysfunction (also known as brain fog)
  • shortness of breath
  • exercise intolerance
  • weakness
  • autonomic instability
  • shortness of breath

The consultation process begins by meeting with a pulmonologist. The UPMC post-COVID-19 pulmonary recovery care team is a service of UPMC Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine.

Talk to your doctor about the post COVID-19 pulmonary recovery care and request a referral.

Referrals

You must have a written referral from your physician to enter the pulmonary rehabilitation program. A pulmonary function test and other tests may be necessary to determine your current health conditions before you begin the program.
