Physiotherapy in the Covid ward: Where compassion overcomes fear
The narrative is an account of the personal experience of a cardiopulmonary physiotherapist inside the Covid ICU, when the city of Mumbai was brought to a standstill. It describes the need to seek an opportunity to face the challenges, guided by intuition and one’s skill set to help those fighting to survive Covid. Facing a new and complex disease meant having to create guidelines for treatment, overcome the patients’ despair, and even cope with the cumbersome protective gear. But the gradual improvement in patients’ health and their joy on recovering inspired us to put in more effort with unity ,dedication and will power, standing together to face the pandemic, enabling us to realise what is required of us, now and in the future – striving to better ourselves in the science of health each day.
