Cardiac Complications in COVID-19 Infection
Respiratory involvement, presenting as mild flulike illness to potentially lethal acute respiratory distress syndrome or fulminant pneumonia, is the dominant clinical manifestation of COVID-19. However, much like any other respiratory tract infection, preexisting cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CV risk factors enhance vulnerability to COVID-19. Further, COVID-19 can worsen underlying CVD and even precipitate de novo cardiac complications.
Join Dr. Sandra Chaparro as she provides overview of various CV manifestations in patients presenting with COVID-19, and discusses the impact of pre-existing CVD and new onset cardiac complications on clinical outcomes.
