The definitive guide to Long Covid, by internationally renowned rehabilitation specialist and cofounder of one of Australia's first Long Covid clinics.

'Evidence-based, balanced, realistic and practical ...Hope is powerful medicine, and this book offers it in spades.' Professor Paul Kelly, Chief Medical Officer

'People with Long Covid need compassion and science, which is what Steven delivers.' Dr Norman Swan

'There is an enormous need for practical and evidence-based information on the understanding and management of Long Covid. This book fills this gap, in a highly accessible, personalised and well-organised manner.' Professor Gregory Dore, Infectious Diseases Physician, St Vincent's Hospital

In a few short years, Long Covid has established itself as one of our most significant health issues, estimated to have affected up to 1 million Australians - and studies suggest that this number is rising. Until now, the lack of understanding and information around this chronic condition has meant that people have largely suffered in silence.

Here for the first time is a comprehensive overview of the disease. Written by Professor Steven Faux AM, one of Australia's leading experts on the treatment of Long Covid, this complete guide draws on up-to-the-minute research, providing:

• advice on diagnosis, key risk factors and prevention
• the very latest on how to identify and manage symptoms
• tips for staying positive and dealing with uncertainty
• an overview of treatment options, for the short and long term, to ensure ongoing health and recovery
• compelling case studies from Australians of all ages living with Long Covid.

This book is essential reading for those experiencing ongoing symptoms following a COVID-19 infection, their loved ones, and the thousands of health professionals trying to navigate this disease on behalf of their patients.
Industry Reviews
"'In the preface to this excellent book on Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC, aka Long Covid), Professor Faux makes a very clear statement: ""we see you"".The rest of the book could easily be summarised as: ""and we are here to help"".This book provides a comprehensive guide for people living with Long Covid and for those who care for them. Professor Faux describes the condition, theories on causation, diagnostic dilemmas and treatment options. It is evidence-based, balanced, realistic and practical. As the author observes at the end of the book, the journey to recovery may be long and hard, but recovery is achievable. Hope is powerful medicine, and this book offers it in spades.' Professor Paul Kelly, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Interim Australian Centre for Disease Control
