Purpose: Various complications including physical, cognitive and functional disorders have been identified in discharged and recovered patients from covid-19. Pulmonary rehabilitation can be considered as a strategy for these disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of respiratory and core stability tele exercises on pulmonary function and functional capacity in Survivors discharged recovered from covid-19.
Methods: In this randomized clinical trial that was performed in 2021 in Qom province, Thirty discharged patients participated in this study voluntarily and were randomly divided into two groups of 15 patients, eventually decreased to 27 patients in two exercise groups (13 patients) and control (14 patients) completed this study. The exercise group performed respiratory and core stability training for 8 weeks in the form of tele-exercise. Before and after the exercise program, pulmonary function including forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume during the first second (FEV1), FEV1/ FVC ratio and The six minute walk test (6MWT)  in both groups were assessed. Mix Repeated Measures test in SPSS27 software was used to compare the mean of pre-test and post-test information of the groups. The significance level for this study was set at 0.05.
Results: In the exercise group, there was a significant improvement in FVC, FEV1 and 6MWT after the intervention (p≤0.05), but no significant difference was observed in the FEV1/ FVC ratio (p> 0.05). Furthermore, in 6MWD, FVC, FVC-Predicted,  FEV1,  and FEV1-Predicted, there was a significant interaction. But in FEV1/FVC ratio, no significant interaction effects was observed between the two groups (p> 0.05).

Conclusion: The results of the study showed that in the new crisis resulting from persistent complications of Covid-19, respiratory and core stability exercises by tele-exercise method can be used as a useful method in rehabilitation of recovered discharged patients from covid-19 diseases.
