Abstract

ntroduction Post-sepsis syndrome is an evolving pathological entity that has gathered marked interest amongst clinicians and researchers over the last two decades. Amongst the survivors of sepsis, quite a few patients experience a variety of physical, psychological and emotional challenges while recovering. COVID-19 is now acknowledged as a multi-organ disease with a wide range of presentations and manifestations and recent researches imply that its problems commonly last 6 to 18 months but for some it can linger on for years. Recent acknowledgement of post sepsis syndrome means that it is yet evolving and population including the treating physicians tends to overlook the potential burden this disease carries beyond the acute phase of infection. Hence, this can be a very isolated place for a patient who is experiencing PSS causing them to doubt the problems, increase hospitalization risk and many may even go untreated. Our aim is highlighting the need for screening for these impairments in order to implement early interventions and secondary prevention.
