Researchers say that regular exercise can reduce the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a leading cause of death in patients with covid-19.
A new study concludes that exercising can protect future coronavirus-infected individuals from developing life-threatening complications, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
Zhen Yan, director of the University of Virginia Skeletal Muscle Research Center, recommends 30 minutes of cardiovascular training every day to help prevent this type of respiratory disease, collect US media.
According to the study, between 3% and 17% of all patients with covid-19 will develop ARDS, while the data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that it will do so between 20% and 42 % Of all hospitalized patients.
Each of us naturally generates the antioxidant known as “extracellular superoxide dismutase “(EcSOD), which can prevent acute respiratory distress syndrome, one of the main causes of death in patients with covid-19. However, exercise increases EcSOD production.
Research suggests that even a single exercise session increases antioxidant productionSo Yan urges people to find ways to exercise even while maintaining social distance. “We cannot live in isolation forever,” says Yan. “Regular exercise has many more health benefits than we think.”
