From Dr. Liu Xiaodan and Dr. Shan Chunlei and their colleagues at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and Lei Shenshan Hospital in Wuhan, comes a must-have guide for recovering and rehabbing after contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the US and the World Health Organization have declared the coronavirus a worldwide health emergency. With the virus in 210 countries around the world, much focus is on the growing number of new cases. But how should those who have already contracted the virus start the recovery process?
According to the clinical needs of mild and severe COVID-19 patients, The Coronavirus Recovery Handbook puts forward a series of lung rehabilitation training methods of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine, which have been used in the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center (affiliated to Fudan University) and Lei Shenshan Hospital in Wuhan. The pulmonary-based Qigong rehabilitation protocol (PQRP) featured in the handbook was created by Dr. Liu Xiaodan to aide in the recuperation of COVID-19 patients. Qigong is a centuries-old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training. This is the first authoritative, comprehensive guide to recovering and rehabbing from COVID-19 with 19 easy-to-follow traditional Chinese exercises.
Written in plain language, here is information that will help readers and professionals recuperate from this devastating virus. As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world—China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States—and cases continue to rise in number, the ability to regain one’s strength, especially in the lungs, is imperative.
Led by Dr. Liu Xiaodan and Dr. Shan Chunlei, The Coronavirus Recovery Handbook was created by the rehabilitation medicine team of Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, based on their previous clinical and scientific research work, combined with relevant national diagnosis and treatment guidance and the clinical experience of many experts involved in the fight against this epidemic. With 19 exercises for individuals to utilize in their recovery from COVID-19, the information in this handbook could be lifesaving. If the worst should happen, the information in this book will help you recover your strength after fighting COVID-19.
