    		Long-term Assessment of Organ Functions
     		Among Survivors of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

			Unknown status

			Brief Summary
			SARS-CoV has caused severe epidemic
			respiratory disease in human populations. By
			July 2003, a total of 8,096 probable cases of
			SARS had been reported including 774 deaths
			in 27 countries, around one-third of which were
			health care workers (HCWs). Previous studies
			have been reported about long-term impacts
			of SARS infection, including lung function
			deficiency, steroid-induced osteonecrosis,
			reduced exercise capacity, and impairment in
			health-related quality of life (HRQoL). HCWs,
			especially nurses, have been reported to
			experience greater psychological distress,
			particularly increased levels of posttraumatic
			stress symptomatology (PTSS). But the very
			complex impacts of this fatal infection on
			HCWs have not been fully elucidated. It is thus
			important to follow these occupational patients
			to detect and manage multi-organ sequelae
			and functional impairment.
