After having a COVID-19 infection, many individuals continue to experience symptoms that persist for weeks, months, or even years. Feeling short of breath or breathing discomfort (dyspnea) is one of the most common, distressing, and debilitating symptoms that persists. How dyspnea is experienced following a COVID-19 infection is not fully understood.
Dr. Donna Goodridge, Dr. Joshua Lawson, and a team of researchers at the University of Saskatchewan are inviting adults who had COVID-19 and have been experiencing shortness of breath in the past month to participate in a research study. The study is funded by the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) and aims to better understand how post-covid dyspnea is experienced by adults living across Saskatchewan and is related with adults’ lung function, physical activity capacity, and quality of life over a 6-month period. This research was reviewed and approved by the University of Saskatchewan’s Biomedical Research Ethics Board (BIOMED #3594).
