Cardiac Complications in COVID-19 Infection
Respiratory involvement, presenting as mild flu-like 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 for an overview of various CV manifestations in patients presenting with COVID-19 and a discussion on the impact of preexisting CVD and new-onset cardiac complications on clinical outcomes.
Cardiologists, Emergency Department Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, Family Medicine Physicians, Physicians Assistants, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Respiratory Therapists (Direct Delivery).
- Effectively identify patients at risk for cardiac complications with COVID-19 and initiate appropriate treatment.
