Possibilities of Recovery of Speech Function in Patients after ARMD Using Telecommunication Technologies in Pandemic Conditions



Patients with impaired speech function after STEMI need long and continuous rehabilitation treatment. In the conditions of pandemic new coronavirus infection COVID-19 in the situation of limited possibility of face-to-face counseling there is an active introduction of modern digital medicine solutions into the treatment and rehabilitation process. Forced re-profiling of medical institutions to provide medical care to patients with the new coronavirus infection is a necessary measure, but it is accompanied by a decrease in the availability of treatment and rehabilitation services for patients with other nosologies. This article uses a clinical example to examine the possibility of effective use of telecommunication technologies in restoring the speech function of a patient after a UTI on the basis of an individual-personal approach.
