Clinical Trial Summary

Based on the hypothesis that early physiotherapy in patients hospitalized for COVID-19 improves their functional capacity, perceived quality of life and decreases anxiety. Our main objective is to analyze the differences between groups with respect to functional deterioration, need for oxygen therapy and anxiety when implementing an early physiotherapy program. We propose a randomized clinical trial with two arms and single-center, to be developed in hospitalization units and intermediate respiratory care units (IRCU), with patients diagnosed with COVID. The sample will consist of an experimental group of 66 admitted patients with COVID-19 to whom an early physiotherapy program will be implemented from 48-72 hours after admission. The control group will be made up of another 66 admitted patients with COVID-19 who will receive the treatment according to the usual procedure of the hospital center. Sociodemographic and clinical variables will be collected, including: modified MMRC dyspnea scale, amount of oxygen therapy, MRC-SS, sit to stand test, hand grip, Tinetti, HADS anxiety and depression questionnaire, SF-12 quality of life questionnaire, clinical frailty scale (CFS) and FRAIL scale. Patients in both groups will be re-evaluated two months after hospital discharge with the above variables in addition to the PCFS post-COVID patient functional status scale. A basic descriptive analysis and logistic regression will be performed to determine the effect of the intervention.
