Return to Sport
Due to the great individual variance in course of a SARS-CoV-2 infection, a differentiated procedure appears logical in the decision concerning return-to-sport:
In estimating a possible return, we suggest first categorization into four categories A-D of the cases based on the clinical symptoms and pulmonary and cardiac findings.
Depending on further symptoms, additional conspicuous findings in other organ systems, the individual course and/or the invasiveness of the therapy or medications applied, recommendations based on the algorithm presented in the position stand should be individually adapted with respect to the duration of sport pause and additional diagnostic measures required.
