    To summarize the application and modern studies on health Qigong Baduanjin by domestic and foreign scholars, combined them with clinical practice of mobile hospital in Wuhan, we explore the prevention, treatment, and recovery of Baduanjin in the war against COVID 19. On the basis of studying ancient classics, such as Huangdi’s Internal Classic, and the concrete exercise methods of Baduanjin, we propose three ideas: prevention before disease onset, promoting healing during illness, and strengthening the body after recovery. We aimed to give full play to Baduanjin in the battle against COVID 19 to popularize correct prevention and health knowledge for the patients and the healthy as well as to provide a reference for medical workers to use Traditional Chinese Medicine to prevention and treatment.

    There are many patients in the blood purification center who need maintenance hemodialysis to maintain life. Those patients generally have low resistance and are easily exposed to coronavirus because they go back and forth the hospital and residence three times a week and closely contact with family, caregivers, community personnel, people in various means of transportation, medical staff, and other patients visiting hospital. Therefore, the blood purification center has become a high-risk environment for the spread of COVID-19 infection. In view of this, our center quickly responded to the formulation and implementation of infection prevention and control measures suitable for the characteristics of the blood purification center and continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) emergency plan for fever and suspected patients. According to these measures, we have a positive effect on preventing and controlling nosocomial infection in the blood purification center.

    Since the rapid spread of COVID?19, our hospital has actively implemented the idea of “preventing the coronavirus from entering.” We paid close attention to details, rapidly carried out personnel and material management at all levels, and strived to do a good job in the prevention and control of the epidemic, so as to achieve zero infection. Patients’ carers are an important part of quality care. Lacking of protection knowledge of infectious diseases would increase the risk of nosocomial infection. Therefore, our nursing department set up a team of epidemic prevention and control management. The team made the revision on contingency plans and care management regulations during the outbreak of COVID?19, strengthened epidemic prevention and control knowledge training, carried out the supervision inspection work, and paid attention to humanized management measures to provide an important guarantee for victory over the COVID?19.
