Post-COVID-19 Aftercare for Children | Rózsakert Medical Center

Post-COVID-19 Aftercare for Children

Our post-COVID examination is now available for children too! In many cases, young people do not display any symptoms if they are infected with the coronavirus. However, complications can still develop after a light or acute illness. In some rare cases, this can even result in a life-threatening inflammation. To assess the health status of younger children and adolescents, identify any potential complications, and provide guidance for future care, our specialists have put together a post-COVID-19 screening package designed specifically for children. Each case should be assessed on an individual basis. This means that instead of uniform testing, all of our younger patients are given a personalized plan, saving them from unnecessary examinations
 

When do we recommend this package? 

  • Basic package: 

For adolescents and younger children who have had a COVID infection who were asymptomatic or only had mild symptoms  

If the child received hospital treatment during the illness, you should speak to the treating physician about their aftercare 

 

  • Complex package:  

For adolescents and younger children who have had a COVID infection with protracted or more severe symptoms  

If the child received hospital treatment during the illness, you should speak to the treating physician about their aftercare 

 

When should the screening tests take place? 

For both Basic and Complex packages: 

At least three weeks after testing positive for COVID with a PCR test, though it is also possible to have the examination several months after the infection. 

 

What tests does the package contain? 

Basic package: 

  • 60-minute consultation with a pediatrician, complete physical examination, ECG 
  • 6-minute walk test (to test endurance and aerobic capacity) 
  • Peak expiratory flow test (to test breathing) 
  • Oxygen saturation assessment 
  • Schellong test: to detect orthostatic blood pressure and heart rate changes
  • Counseling on how to return to previous level of physical activity

 

Complex package: 

  • Basic package + full blood test, thyroid function (TSH, T4), troponin 

 

 

How much does it cost?
