We must be aware that new respiratory virus pandemic can happen frequently. Standard lung function tests should keep their crucial role to assist the clinicians in the decision-making process, but they are at risk for the spread of infection because of the generated droplets. We used opto-electronic plethysmography to investigate the post-COVID-19 syndrome on 12 patients after ICU. We found normal ventilatory pattern at rest, a restrictive pattern located in the ribcage during vital capacity and surgical mask to significantly increase minute ventilation. The attention on unconventional respiratory function tests should be sponsored for the important information they can provide.
