Aims: COVID- 19 is a highly prevalent infectious disease with several systemic complications, including neurological and psychological complications.This study aimed to evaluate the status of cognitive function of individuals improved by COVID- 19 in 2021.
Instrument & Methods: The present cross-sectional study was performed on 309 patients recovered from COVID- 19.Cognitive function assessment was performed using the Addenbrooke Cognitive Test (ACE-R).
Findings: In this study, 309 patients recovered from COVID-19 with a mean age of 44.90 9 9.45 years (range 21-59) participated. The mean cognitive function of participants was 88.86 7 7.26 which have achieved nearly 89% of the total score (100 points) and indicates the normal cognitive function of individuals. There was a significant relationship between cognitive function (and all its components) in individuals with the variables of age, education, and employment. In addition, the rate of cognitive function (and all its components except expressive language) in people with intubation were significantly less than those who had not been intubated during treatment. A total of 18 patients (5.8%) had an abnormal cognitive function.
Conclusion: The findings showed that cognitive impairments there are even in patients recovering from COVID-19 and may be associated with underlying inflammatory processes.
