Devenir fonctionnel à 4 et 6 mois des patients hospitalisés en réanimation pour une infection sévère à la Covid-19

Abstract : Many patients present with severe Covid 19 infections, requiring intensive care. Prolonged stays in intensive care units provide a variety of symptoms: motor, neuropsychological, and psychiatric, known as the post-intensive care syndrome. These symptoms are more recently described in the long covid. Objective: Describe the functional outcome of patients hospitalized in intensive care following severe covid-19 infection. Methods: All patients hospitalized in the intensive care units of La Manche for severe SARS COV 2 infection between 01/03 and 31/05/2020 were included. We contacted them by telephone at 4 and 6 months of their admission in order to reassess their functional disability, mood and fatigue. Results: 34 patients were included in the study, including 9 patients who died. At 4 months, 11 patients had moderate disability and 7 had good recovery. At 6 months, 13 patients had moderate disability and 11 had good recovery. Significant improvement between 4 and 6 months of the GOSE (p<0.05). Fatigue was severe in the majority of patients (64%) at 4 and 6 months. 10 patients had probable anxiety and 3 had definite anxiety. At 6 months, 9 patients had probable anxiety. Significant decrease in HAD scores from 4 to 6 months (p<0.05). Conclusion: The functional outcome was satisfactory with 44% good recovery and 52% moderate disability. The major symptom remains severe fatigue, persistent at 6 months. The symptoms that we can highlight at the end of the intensive care unit are similar to those currently described in the long covid.
