CME/CE Test

Do Fatigue and Exercise Intolerance Post-COVID-19 Indicate a Chronic Disease?

To receive AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, you must receive a minimum score of 75% on the post-test.

  1. You are a member of the healthcare team seeing a 40-year-old woman who complains of a 2-month history of fatigue and difficulty concentrating after COVID-19 infection, presumably with the Omicron variant. What should you consider regarding results of the previous study by Morioka and colleagues comparing the prevalence of long COVID with Omicron vs previous variants as you evaluate this patient?
    The prevalence of long COVID was approximately 10-fold less common with Omicron vs other variants
    Prolonged fatigue was more common with Omicron vs previous variants
    Prolonged shortness of breath was more common with previous strains vs Omicron
    Prolonged dysgeusia was more common with previous strains vs Omicron
  2. The patient wants to know whether she has myalgic encephalitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). According to the current study by Kedor and colleagues, what can you tell her?
    13% of patients with long COVID met criteria for ME/CFS
    71% of patients with long COVID met criteria for ME/CFS
    ME/CFS promoted much higher disability vs long COVID
    Fatigue and stress intolerance were more severe in ME/CFS vs long COVID
