Monitoring

In patients with persistent dyspnoea, pulmonary function testing and a chest x-ray and/or high-resolution CT of the thorax are used for the monitoring of residual deficits in physiological and structural lung function.

Psychiatric and psychological support is indicated in patients facing psychobehavioural problems. These include psychological distress with the inability to concentrate, poor memory, depression, and anxiety and are frequently reported in patients who have recovered from SARS.[79]
