Cardiomyopathies associated with COVID-19 infection

Author(s): Federico Roato*

Worldwide viral disease COVID-19 infection has a notably high risk of morbidity and fatality. Numerous systems are impacted by this illness. The involvement of the cardiovascular system ranks highly among these systems. Arrhythmias play a significant role in the involvement of the cardiovascular system. Arrhythmias can occur as a result of viral toxicity, secondary issues, and medications. Treatment involves changing the underlying mechanism, which is crucial. We discuss cardiac arrhythmia in COVID-19 infection because of its significance. The aim of this study was to assess the risk of cardiac arrest and arrhythmias such as incident Atrial Fibrillation (AF), bradyarrhythmias, and Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia (NSVT) in a sizable metropolitan population hospitalized for COVID19. We also looked at links between the occurrence of these arrhythmias and death. The ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Arrhythmia is one of the most feared cardiac problems associated with COVID-19. There are numerous recorded cases of this. The etiology of the arrhythmia caused by COVID-19 is being investigated in numerous ongoing investigations. We still know very little about the precise workings of the latter, though. Direct or indirect endomyocardial tissue injury may be a factor in the underlying potential pathways.
