Summary
Brief summary
Patients who are critically ill with COVID-19 requiring life support in an intensive care
unit (ICU) have increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Currently the ICU community does
not know what effect the disease, the ICU admission, physiotherapy interventions and life
support have on their long-term quality of life and whether they can return to their
pre-illness level of function following ICU.

COVID-Recovery will describe the physiotherapy interventions delivered to critically ill
patients with COVID-19. In survivors, COVID-Recovery will utilise telephone follow-up of ICU
survivors to assess disability-free survival and quality of life at 6 months after ICU
admission. Additionally, COVID-Recovery will identify if there are predictors of
disability-free survival. COVID-Recovery will aim to select up to 300 patients diagnosed with
COVID-19 from ICUs in Australia. If they survive to hospital discharge, patients will be
invited to receive a telephone questionnaire at 6 months after the ICU admission that aims to
assess their long-term outcomes, including physical, cognitive and emotional function,
quality of life, and whether they have been able to return to work following ICU discharge.

COVID-Recovery will also aim to investigate the human aspect of COVID-19 by further
investigating a sub-set of patients. COVID-Recovery will recruit between 15-30 of these
patients and a family member, so COVID-Recovery can explore the patient experience of being
admitted to the ICU and treated for COVID-19, as well as illuminate and explore the
experience of having a close relative admitted and treated for COVID-19.
